Aust PM defiant on Kyoto stance at World Energy Congress launch

Australian Prime Minister John Howard defended his country's controversial refusal to ratify the Kyoto Protocol on greenhouse gases as he launched the 19th World Energy Congress in Sydney. Howard acknowledged Australia's stance on Kyoto was 'at variance with the attitudes of many countries around the world' -- it is the only major industrialised nation aside from the United States not to ratify the treaty.

Amazing, the sort of important issues Teflon Johnny can hide in the media via the smoke screen of a election campaign......
