NSW now spending to reduce greenhouse emissions

While the Australian Federal Government is against reducing CO2 emissions, $300,000 is to be spent over two years on reducing greenhouse gases by the State and Local Governments and Shires Associations of NSW. It is interesting and saddening that part of the funding is to help us adapt to climate change. If the funding had been delivered, say, 10 years ago it could have gone towards helping us prevent more climate change, rather than adapt to it. Unfortunately our emissions friendly Federal Government has put us and our kids on a path where we, and our descendents, will be spending a lot more than $150,000 per year adapting to the climate change happening right now.
