Ups and downs

21 07 2009

The good:

  • World leaders agree that we should attempt to keep global warming limited to 2 degrees
    Celsius or less (even if their actions don’t fit their stated goals).  It’s a little odd though that the Australian govt. enthuses about a goal of 80% carbon reduction (for developed nations) by 2050 yet only plans to reduce by 60% itself.
  • The Powershift youth conference is a huge success and harnesses the vitality and energy of young Australians.

The bad:
