South Australian Premier Mike Rann might be listening to the once-banned Solar Shop advertisements in which Tim Flannery says climate change is the greatest threat facing humanity.
According to ABC Online, just today he has pledged a whopping 60 percent cut in greenhouse gas emissions if his government is re-elected on March 18.
He will even introduce new laws to make sure the target is achieved by 2050.
The policy was apparently announced at a wind farm this morning and includes $250,000 to set up a climate change research centre at the University of Adelaide and the installation of mini wind turbines on government buildings in the city.
So 2050 is how many elections away? How old will Mike Rann be in 2050?
(Sorry Joe, but one for Ender.)
