Increase Australia's Mandatory Renewable Energy Target sign now

To the Honourable the President and Members of the Senate in Parliament assembled:
We, the undersigned, recognise that human-induced global warming is a serious problem confronting Australias future and that the current policies and actions of the Australian Government are inadequate to address this global challenge.
The current Mandatory Renewable Energy Target of 9500GWh per year (about 2\% of electricity generated) is likely to be met by December 2006. Once this target is met, investment in the Australian renewable energy industry will cease, as new generators will not be guaranteed access to Australias expanding energy market.
At the same time, the Government is investing large sums into unproven clean coal technologies.
Your petitioners request the House to call on the Government to:
--provide a large increase in support for renewable energy research and development; and
--increase the Mandatory Renewable Energy Target for electricity retailers to 50,000GWh/yr (10\%) by 2010 and 100,000GWh/yr (20\%) by 2020.
