More urgent, more humane

Why waste our nation­al effort on “world lead­ing”, futile, emis­sion abate­ment? There are more impor­tant goals that will save lives now.

Rather than bend­ing over back­wards to accom­mo­date the US, if Aus­tralia main­tained the human­i­tar­i­an com­mit­ment it dis­played in sign­ing [the 2008 U.N. Con­ven­tion on Clus­ter Muni­tions ] and active­ly worked to con­vince all our allies to cease using clus­ter muni­tions, we could sure­ly make a sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tion towards a bet­ter world.” Extract from Mal­colm Fras­er in The Aus­tralian
