Switch to green energy to drive Australian power bills higher
Prime Minister John Howard, like President George W. Bush, has refused to ratify the Kyoto agreement for cutting greenhouse emissions, claiming that it would place too great a cost on the Australian economy. Despite this, Prime Minister Howard has stated that Australia is one of the few OECD countries currently on track to either meet, or go very close to meeting, its Kyoto target. He has also pledged to sign up to any international carbon-trading scheme and will consider any post-Kyoto pact. Global warming and the environment are expected to be important issues for voters in the 2007 Australian federal elections.
