Brisbane to ratify the Kyoto Protocol

ABC news reports that Brisbane City will be ratifying the Kyoto Protocol – that means they are committing to the targets in Kyoto. Wouldn’t it be great if all the major cities followed suit?

We also need to do a lot more than Kyoto requires – deep cuts of 60% or more to emissions by 2050 are required. I hope Brisbane hasn’t taken the easy option and ratified simply because it knows it is on track to meet the targets – and is actually trying to go beyond the targets Kyoto spells out.

But progress nonetheless.
