ENVIRONMENT—CLIMATE CHANGE

Senator Milne, pursuant to notice of motion not objected to as a formal motion, moved general business notice of motion no. 142—That the Senate—

 (a) notes that:

  (i) the global carbon budget to give us a 75 per cent chance of constraining global warming to less than 2oC has been identified as in the order of 1 000 gigatonnes between 2000 and 2050, of which some 30 per cent has already been emitted, and

  (ii) there are various ways of sharing the task of meeting that global budget, depending on your view of equity; and

 (b) calls on the Government to set out the principles which underpin the negotiating position on burden sharing it will take to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change meeting in Cancun that begins in the week beginning 28 November 2010.
