Global meltdown


Richard Dennis, Greens parliamentary staffer, addressing a February 6 rally at the ACT Legislative Assembly marking the first anniversary of the signing of the Kyoto Protocol on reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The rally called on the federal government to commit to signing the protocol and on the ACT government to commit to large and meaningful greenhouse gas emission reduction targets. Organised by the Conservation Council, the rally urged people to adopt the term "global meltdown" instead of "global warming" to highlight the crisis in the global climate system.
