How is that any different than the rest of the developed world?

But no, the real problem is population growth in poor countries :)

I took my daughters to the Zoo (in Sydney) last Saturday and while I no longer live in Sydney because of the lifestyle offering 2 hours north, it remains a completely seductive place - especially around the harbour.

The State of the Environment Reporting process is pretty good in theory but it seems to have delivered very little in practice. There will be no government activity on any of the big issues between now and the next comprehensive report (except maybe a bit more rhetoric).

And if they do you can expect "Sprawl-Mart" (the simpsons 2 weeks ago) to take over soon.
