Opposition Leader Kevin Rudd says that climate change is the great moral challenge of our generation.
Speaking at the National Climate Change Summit, Rudd said the dimensions of the climate change challenge were so great that “climate change should be beyond politics”.
In a separate statement, the ALP’s Environment spokesman, Peter Garrett, says “we must act now”. Garrett said Labor would introduce a carbon trading scheme, ratify the Kyoto treaty and develop renewable energy.
