Greens call on Howard to release secret climate change documents

23rd May 07

Greens Leader Bob Brown has called on the Prime Minister to release 5 reports on climate change drawn up over the last six months by the Office of National Assessments (ONA).

“These reports are not about defending the nation from armed invasion. They are about the threat of climate change to every Australian business and citizen. The public has a right to know what they contain,” Senator Brown said.

Senator Brown said Mr Howard has selectively released ONA documents such s its report into the “children overboard” affair. A climate change report was released by the Pentagon three years ago.
