hi,
Can we take a measure that how much pollution we cause in a day and how much plants we grow in one day ?
NO i guess.
So We can't exactly say that Australia is green enough or not

Altough I'm not living in Australia, just want to, I feel like I have to defend it. Wildlife preservation is and always was important for me. Before choosing Australia as my destination of immigration I had put a lot of research into it. Not just into living and working conditions and everyday life but the protection of environment too and I can assure you, Australia is a very green place indeed. I have read countless success stories and on-going projects of recycling vast amounts of various materials, saving and breeding endagered species, conserving natural habitats. The list is endless.

For example my favourite animals, the frogs, are given such extensive attention and care that I rarely ever see anywhere else. And they are one of the least popular animals, compared to the emblematic koala or kenguru! I'm sure everyone has experiences about the opposite happening, factories polluting the air and water, people throwing out trash near forests and causing animals to die from poisoning or getting stuck in a bottle.

Unfortunately not everyone cares for any other life besides their own. But so far I've seen and heard more good than bad about Australia concerning this matter.

Tricky question, because how do you define "green enough"? If you want to ask if Oz is making efforts to be green, then I would immediately say yes. We've had far less trouble accepting the reality of climate change than some of our counterparts in the west, which may explain why we're keen about protecting the environment.

I'd say our efforts are pretty inline with the rest of the worlds leading nations. I'd like to see a greater push for electric hybrid cars though.

Hybrid cars are useless, they emit almost as much CO2 at a much higher price.

Waste management... we start in our kitchen, be very strict in teaching how to manage waste materials properly.
Could save tons of non bio materials and will eventually save a lot... Start small and think big.
thanks
