That's Right Yank, What Are You Gonna Do About It?

Apparently us Aussies are destroying the planet all by ourselves, and the ever eco-conscious United Statesians are all atwitter.

The head of NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies, Professor James Hansen, has written an open letter to Barack Obama calling for a moratorium on coal-fired power stations and the use of next-generation nuclear power.

In the letter he says: "Australia exports coal and sets atmospheric carbon dioxide goals so large
as to guarantee destruction of much of the life on the planet."

Two words: Kyoto, motherfucker (or is that technically three words?)
