Climate criminal Australia is a world leader in annual per capita greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution and the world’s biggest coal exporter. With the Copenhagen Climate Change Conference only weeks away, Australia has decided to completely and permanently ignore its huge agricultural GHG emissions as well as ignoring GHGs from its world-leading coal exports.

US lackey, climate criminal Apartheid Australia has effectively sabotaged the Copenhagen Climate Change Conference before it has even begun and has effectively declared "climate war" on the Developing World.

According to top Australian newspaper The Age, Melbourne (16 November 2009): "The [Australian] Government will permanently exclude agricultural [greenhouse gas, GHG] emissions and give farmers access to credits for good farming practices such as tree planting." [1].

According to World Bank Group environmental experts the world annual GHG pollution is 50% bigger than previously thought and the annual livestock GHG contribution is over 51% of the world total. [2].

The Australian Labor Government is thus committing to permanently ignoring over 50% of Australia’s huge domestic GHG emissions.

This represents a monumental betrayal of Labor voters, Australia, Humanity and the Biosphere by the pro-coal Australian Labor Government.

Australia is a world leader in annual per capita GHG pollution with a domestic plus exported value 10 times the world’s annual per capita GHG pollution, 25 times India’s, 20 times the Developing World’s and 60 times that of Bangladesh. [3].

However the 2 major Australian parties (the Liberal-National Party Coalition and the Labor Party, collectively known as the Lib-Labs) are telling the world several weeks before Copenhagen that Australia will keep polluting domestically forever at more than 50% of the current level in addition to expanding Australia’s world-leading coal exports – sabotage of the Copenhagen Climate Change Conference, betrayal of Humanity, climate genocide, ecocide and terracide. [4].

Having already helped the US sabotage the 2007 Bali Climate Change Conference and the 2008 Poznan Climate Change Conference, US lackey, climate criminal and war criminal Australia has now also effectively sabotaged the 2009 Copenhagen Climate Change Conference a few weeks before it has even begun by excluding the huge methanogenic livestock contribution from mitigation consideration. [5].

Top UK climate scientist Dr James Lovelock has estimated that fewer than 1 billion human beings will survive the century due to unaddressed man-made global warming. This dire prediction means a Climate Genocide in which 10 billion non-Europeans will die avoidably this century, this carnage including about 6 billion infants, 3 billion Muslims, 2 billion Indians, 0.5 billion Bengalis, 0.3 billion Pakistanis and 0.3 billion Bangladeshis. Further, the species extinction rate is already 100-1,000 times greater than before the 20th century – political inaction will mean destruction of much of the Biosphere (the ecosystems and species of the world) as well as the destruction of most of Humanity. [6].

What can decent Humanity do in response to climate criminal Australia’s declaration of "climate war" on the Developing World?

Peace is the only way but silence kills and silence is complicity. Decent folk must (a) inform everyone they can and (b) urge Sanctions, Boycotts, Green tariffs, Reparations demands and International Criminal Court (ICC) prosecutions to bring "dog in the manger" Apartheid Australia to heel.
