Greg Combet, Minister for Climate Change stated in a media release that Australia’s emissions are expected to rise unless action is taken.
“In 2020 emissions are projected to be 24 percent above 2000 levels,” said Mr Combet. “Clearly more needs to be done.”
Georgie Drury, founder of Online Personal Trainer, is an ‘EcoSmart Cookie’ that urges everyone to go on a ‘carbon diet’.
“There is one diet that, if more people were on, would make a world of difference,” said Drury.
Drury believes economical water and electricity use, and reducing waste and pollution outputs can greatly decrease our carbon footprint.
