Let's just hope that this is now firmly on the agenda.

I do find the Libs comparing Penny Wong to Sadam Hussein over this issue
pretty galling given they did approximately nothing for the environment in
their recent period of governance and were presided over by our favourite
"climate change skeptic".

Let's just hope the change of political winds has come soon enough that
something effective can be done.
