Did you know there was an election going on in Australia? No? Let Greenbang bring you up to speed in that case. The Aussies have thrown out shifty looking John Howard and brought in nerdy looking Kevin Rudd.
Rudd has already pledged to get all environmental on Australia’s ass. The Guardian says:
Australia’s new prime minister, Kevin Rudd, made climate change his top priority on Sunday, seeking advice on ratifying the Kyoto pact and telling Indonesia he will go to December’s UN climate summit in Bali.
Good news: Rudd has already also gone for 20 percent of the country’s energy to come from renewable energy by 2020. Bad news: he wants to be George ‘climate change? What climate change?’ Dubya’s mate.
