ABSTRACT
The article argues that international studies on the environment show that cuts in greenhouse gas emissions needed to prevent severe global warming effects is feasible. Due to repeated warnings by the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), many nations have committed to a Post-Kyoto Framework that answers questions on how deep cuts can be achieved. Although Australia has refused to commit to the Kyoto Protocol, it is one of the a few nations that will be able to meet the initial Kyoto 1990 targets by 2012. There are now 10 fully costed deep-cut studies worldwide and strict regulation on gas emissions is highly encouraged.
