Greens calls Government hypocrites over deforestation

Indeed they are...

clipped from www.theage.com.au

Prime Minister John Howard will be a hypocrite if he calls on
other countries to avoid deforestation while allowing further
logging in Tasmanian and Victorian native forests, the Australian
Greens say.

A leaked declaration on climate change, energy security and
clean development, prepared for the 21 leaders attending the
Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit next month, calls
on the world's major polluters to set goals to cut greenhouse gas
emissions.

It also calls for agreement on the importance of preserving and
managing forests.

But Greens leader Bob Brown said the authorised destruction of
Tasmanian and Victorian forests is one of the world's worst
examples of deliberate deforestation.

"Logging and burning Tasmanian and Victorian native forests is
up there amongst the world's worst examples of deliberate
deforestation and greenhouse gas pollution of the Earth's
atmosphere - the very thing the APEC declaration aims to stop.

Over the 10-year period as a whole, climate continues to warm and 2014 is likely to be 0.3 deg C warmer than 2004. The overall trend in warming is driven by greenhouse gas emissions but this warming effect will be broadly cancelled out over the next few years by the changing patterns of the ocean temperatures.

Dear Mr Life of Earth. You are a SEO, dude. I have no problem with that but your comments are seemingly not genuine because you cut and paste them all over the Internet. I must ask you to please stop using my blog in this way — it's disrespectful.

Thanks,

Wadard

Indeed, the problem of government and corporate hypocrisy is out of control. I've blogged about Starbucks promotion of the eco-friendly film Arctic Tale, while they continue to lack a corporate recycling program.
Starbucks + Arctic Tale + Global Warming = Corporate Hypocrisy
