Planet Earth is in much more trouble than most people think. Please act now by telephoning:
Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd, on 02 6277 7700 and
Minister for Climate Change, Penny Wong, on 02 6277 7920
while Penny Wong is in Poznan.
It is critical that we pull out all stops (at least 40% reduction from 1990 levels) to avert climate change, because we have already passed three tipping points, which are:
(1) loss of the ability of Earth to reflect solar radiation back into space as the Arctic ice sheet diminishes
(2) release of methane from the ocean floor, land animals and from the permafrost
(3) decrease in the ocean’s capacity to absorb CO2 as its temperature increases
These processes are irreversible for all practical purposes in time frames that we are used to, but the more we do to reduce carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide levels the less serious the consequences.
The people answering the telephone numbers are receptive and seemed able to take down the information very fast.
