This is an American cartoon:

But it is relevant to Australia. The bull in Australia on this issue is over the sustainability of energy. You can see it here despite this.

And you can see it in Ian Campbell, the Environment Minister's, support for the use of nuclear power and a significant expansion of uranium mining as part of a wide-ranging strategy to cut greenhouse gas emissions despite this.

The real issue is what to do about climate change. Australia's effective position is not to restrict our economy's carbon emissions whilst acknowledging the consensus of climate science that our climate is changing because of the additional greenhouse gases we are adding to the atmosphere; and that Australia is 'very vulnerable' to climate change.

Australia is not doing very much about climate change.
