Australian Environment Minister latest to accept global warming is human-induced

The balance of the scientific evidence is that is occurring, is potentially harmful, and is largely caused by human activity. That is the conclusion that Australian Environment Minister Ian Campbell has come to after evaluating the scientific evidence over the last 12 months. He claims that Dubya Bush, Tony Blair and Australia's former chief scientist Robin Batterham all agree with him. He also claims that, despite not ratifying the , Australia is one of the most progressive nations in the world on the issue of global warming. I wonder what policies he would point to in order to support that claim? Nevertheless, being aware of the problem is a start. Apparently he is planning a trip over to the UK for a conference on global warming that Tony Blair has organized. I wonder if they will announce some actual plans for action, or just proclaim once again that its an 'important issue'.
