Carbon Reduction Pollution Scheme

.
Kevin Rudd has released Australia's Carbon Reduction Pollution Scheme
.
.
On the 2020 target:
.
"The Government has decided on a medium-term target range to reduce emissions by between 5 and 15 per cent below 2000 levels by 2020, balancing the need to make a strong contribution to international efforts with ensuring a balanced and measured start to the Scheme."
.
The 2020 target is very disappointing (like getting a Coogee Bay Hotel desert).
.
Shame on Kevin Rudd and shame on Penny Wong for setting such a weak 2020 target!!
.
The European Commission and EU governments decided upon a 2020 target of cutting greenhouse gases by at least 20%, compared with 1990 levels. Their target will rise to 30% if an international agreement is reached committing other developed countries and the more advanced developing nations to comparable emission reductions.
.

20% cut in greenhouse gas emissions by 2020
20% increase in use of renewable energy by 2020
20% cut in energy consumption through improved energy efficiency by 2020

Check out what the Climate Institute has to say on the CRPS:
