Hi Ralph,

Are you referring to green bucks ?  

I say that because, while loving Sean's achievement, I am
remembering that Dr David Kemp, our Federal Environment
Minister said "we" globally have to cut our greenhouse
emissions by 60%.

Please remember also that Australia is second only to the
USA as contributors to a weapon of mass species destruction,
the greenhouse gas.

We also "happen" to be one of the few OECD nations not
signed up to the Kyoto protocol. This is important not for
the short-term emission reduction targets, but most of all
for the development of carbon trading and the destruction of
gas-guzzling economies.  These might even be termed
"eco-terrorist" because they are acting in defiance of the
United Nations.

Agreening with wishes for 2003
