Global Warming

Global warming, caused by excess levels of carbon dioxide (CO2), is a serious threat to the future of our planet and urgently needs action.  The plethora of scientific research informing climate change is easily available on the internet.  You can read Peter's contributions to this debate by going to the "Chamber Collection" in the House of Representatives Hansard and using the search term "climate change" and "global warming".  Peter also talks about climate change in his newspaper columns and newsletters (see Media Centre page). Below are some examples of his work on this important issue.

On 20 June 2006 the Government gagged yet another debate, this time on the Renewable Energy (Electricity) Amendment Bill 2006, so depriving Peter and other MPs the opportunity to speak on this issue of national and global importance.

Peter had to request his written speech on this bill be incorporated into the Hansard record.
