Kyoto campaign

Global warming fear-mongers continue to call for drastic and costly government action to address climate change. In response, the ALS continues to explore the science and economics of the Kyoto Protocol (and other proposed policies) to show why there is currently no convincing argument for government intervention.

Anti-Kyoto economists petition (2003)

In 2003, the ALS helped to coordinate a petition to show that a significant number of economists did not support the ratification of the Kyoto Protocol. The petition was in response to a pro-Kyoto petition arranged by Australian economists Clive Hamilton (of the Australia Institute) and John Quiggin. While the anti-Kyoto petition gained fewer signatures than the pro-Kyoto petition, it was successful in exposing the continued controversy surrounding Kyoto and the lack of consensus on action.

The petition-wars were discussed by Dr Alex Robson in an opinion article in the Canberra Times.
