According to the latest reports, Australia is on track in fulfilling its Australia Kyoto greenhouse gas discharge target set by the Kyoto protocol act. The country is considered to be one of the top greenhouse gas producers in the globe primarily due to its 80 percent coal to electricity generation.

According to some reports, greenhouse gas emission increased within the last 20 years. Higher greenhouse emissions can be attributed through power generation and transport.


The government, through the Australia Kyoto protocol agreement, the industrial sector would opt for more energy efficient and greener eco friendly source of power. Although the Australia Kyoto pact has encountered adamant political opposition, the green eco friendly laws on greener renewable energy have garnered greater support. In a report submitted to the UN council, the government has managed to decrease the regular greenhouse emissions by 13 million tonnes during a field study conducted from 2008 to 2009.



Referring to the Australia Kyoto protocol agreement, the country is expected to limit its greenhouse gas production by a great 108 percent.

This is based from the baseline levels set by the agreement. And should be attained and maintained during the agreements f year commitment period of 5 years starting 2008-2012.Government reviews track annual emissions of those greenhouse gasses, which excluded those emitted from land use, and change/ forestry, for a period of four quarters from Dec 2009 fell to about 2.4 %.

That is equivalent to 550 million tonnes of CO2 equivalent gas in 2008 to 537 million tonnes of CO2 greenhouse gas in 2009.


Yet on a later more recent emissions report, it was estimated that greenhouse emissions have increased by a percentage of 0.6. With the rising population and Australia’s economic growth, the country is struggling to meet Australia Kyoto pact in maintaining and possibly lowering the greenhouse gas byproduct. One reason is the current boom of mining and fossil fuel burning.

The government has placed a mark of reducing emissions by 5 % from the 2000 levels which is targeted by 2020.


But power generation and transport emissions have grown by 43 percent between the years of 1990 and 2009.


And if ever the country wants to achieve the reduction, all sectors of the economy must pitch in to make it happen.

According to the Australian Climate Institute reported that the country, a leading coal exporter in the world, would have difficulty in meeting the 5 percent green house gas emissions cut target if a system such as the Australia Kyoto pact did not exist.


A market system and guardian that places a toll on pollution generation.

But with the safeguards and the procedures such as the Australia Kyoto protocol in place, reducing greenhouse gas emission rates from all over the world can now be monitored and even imposed.

Providing a chance for the environment to recover and possibly in the long run reduce the effects of climate change brought about by global warming.
