they’re not doing anything, why should I?

Will the Treasurer and, for that matter, the federal government, ever get it?

Federal Treasurer Peter Costello says there is no point in Australia reducing its greenhouse gas emissions when China and India are such major global polluters.

“There’s no point in Australia meeting its emissions target – and we are on track to do so, and I believe we ought to do so when we’re less than 1 per cent of global emissions – if you’re going to have major emitters such as China and India, which are increasing every year the emissions by more than the total of Australia,”

Which is like saying it is not worth me turning the tap off while I clean my teeth because industry uses heaps of water anyway…my little bit is just isn’t worth doing.
