30% cut for just $1

Following on from my previous article Even Cheaper Solar Power, i see today that there is a report that Australia could reduce carbon emissions by 30% for less than 1 dollar per day.

The report also proved once again that the cost of action is far less than the cost of inaction - by pointing out that the 2002-03 drought alone, was three times more costly than a 30% reduction in greenhouse gases.

The report also found Australia could cut emissions by 60 per cent by 2030 – a full 20 years ahead of the Federal Government’s commitment to 60 per cent reductions by 2050. [full article from ACF]
