Government Good News

It was announced today that the Australian government has allocated $500m to a global warming fund. Part of this money will help fund a Solar Power Station in Victoria. The station - producing enough energy to power 45,000 homes - will apparently be the largest in the world.

So this seems to be a good start - but clearly still more can be done. Saturday November 4 is the national Walk Against Warming. With events in various cities around Australia, the aim of the day is to encourage the government to (a) sign the Kyoto Protocol, and (b) be more proactive about reducing greenhouse gases.
