Air Links

Climate, the Air, it’s quality and Climate Change are  well represented within the websites, organisations and advocates on the internet.

I have, however, Compiled a few useful “AIR” links as a starting point, if you are looking for information.

If you are compelled to make a difference to the Quality of Air, then firstly, look at your own lifestyle practices and how you can encourage others to change, about you. And above all, have compassion for those that do not, or cannot change their lifestyles appropriately, to help halt this world threatening challenge.

Their are many people in this world who are experiencing poverty to such a level, that whilst climate change will impact on them, they are in a restricted position to do much about climate change. And above all remember that humans alone, do not breathe the air we pollute. Animals, plants – all living creatures on earth require this resource for survival.

The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change has been signed by 194 State Parties . The Kyoto Protocol has been ratify by 184 State Parties .

“Air…Air

Hit me in the face
I run faster
Faster into the air
(I say to myself)
What is happening to my skin?
Where is that protection that I needed?
Air can hurt you too
Air can hurt you too
Some people say not to worry about the air
Some people never had experience with…
Air…Air
It can break your heart
So remember when the weather gets rough
(You’ll say to yourself)
What is happening to my skin?
Where is that protection that I needed?
Air can hurt you too
Air can hurt you too
Some people say not to worry about the air
Some people don’t know shit about the…
Air…”

History in the making: Australia contributes their “drop” in the rising ocean….

Exposure Draft of the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme Legislation at Australian Government Department of Climate Change: 10th March 2009 ( it was at  http://www.climatechange.gov.au/emissionstrading/legislation/index.html) –  is now not there. Sorry, if you are looking for it, try searching the Australian Government Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency. These Australian government departments keep changing their names – makes research and continuity a bit tricky!!

The above LINK will used to give you  information –  Fact Sheets,  How to Make a Submission,  Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme White Paper.
