Climate Change and Carbon Emissions in Australia.

Climate change has been affecting Australia for thousands of years.

Australia, with its population of both human and animals, releases about 1% of the world’s greenhouse gases.

It was 1.5% in 2005.

Australia is attempting to stop its population increasing too fast. This would hold back global emissions and slow climate change slightly.

Australia is also increasing its solar, wind and wave power.

Australia could cut some of its emissions easily, and allow other countries to emit them instead, but that won’t help. eg: Australia smelts Aluminium, which is then exported and used elsewhere. This accounts for some 15% of electricity consumed.
