APEC. Greenhouse Gas Declaration 'Sort Of'
Today at APEC, world leaders sort of reached a consensus about setting aspirational targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Obviously shamed by Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harpers announcement yesterday, climate change was thrust into center stage at the round table today.
Fortunately Mr Harper is staying in Australia until Tuesday when he will address the Parliament. We are all looking forward to that.
More Leadership woes for Prime Minister John Howard as more calls from within the Liberal party for him to resign have dogged him throughout the APEC summit.
Tonight After a dinner of Yellow Finn Tuna, Yabbie’s (small native freshwater crayfish) Caviar, Black Angus Beef Strip Loin and a selection of the best wine Australia has to offer, George Bush will leave the summit early.
The massive riots predicted by police did not eventuate, and their presence led to more trouble than would have been if they were not there. Appart from a few skirmishes and 17 arrests, the protest was colourful and entertaining.
The boys from the Chaser were again making news, this time when the police commissioner called for them to be prosecuted for their prank involving the Fake Canadian motorcade. High Profile Lawyer Chris Murphy offered to represent the Chaser for free. saying “This was a harmless prank and the police were at fault”, He went on to say “this prank show us we are not overwhelmed by sniveling Politicians and authoritarian police” He says a lot more in this report too.
