    Australia's emissions projected to rise sharply MP3

    A report by the Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency shows Australia's carbon emissions are predicted to rise by 24 per cent of 2000 levels by 2020. That's well above the Federal Government's aim of reducing emissions by five per cent of 2000 levels by 2020.
