Business or survival of the World? I guess it business

"Australia emits the most planet-changing carbon dioxide per capita of any industrialised country in the world, but our Federal Government has its head too far down a coalmine to sign the Kyoto Protocol, price carbon appropriately or encourage genuine large-scale investment in renewable energy. Politicians at all levels of government need to see the writing on the wall, and realise this is not an issue for somebody else to solve - it's the issue in their backyard." www.GetUp.org.au

Our farmers are crippled by drought. Bush fires are breaking out earlier every year. We're facing record-breaking heat waves, increasing water scarcity and intensifying cyclones and storms. Each of us with hopes for our future, or with children and grandchildren who will be left with our mess, must act now. www.getup.org,au

Hey ... I just saw you on the Google review. I wish those guys would add a prompt to that thing so
people won't post without the URL's. I've posted about that more than once there.

I went ahead and added that translator to the new site. Check it out. All the links you post will translate too.
