Climate change fight needs political ardour: Greenpeace

Greenpeace says the only thing Australia lacks in the fight against climate change is political will.

The environment group is stepping up its campaign on the issue, sending its ship the Esperanza to ports on the eastern seaboard to call for urgent action.

Greenpeace Australia Pacific chief executive Steve Shallhorn has a message for the Prime Minister Kevin Rudd ahead of the release of the Garnaut report on climate change next week.

"We will be watching you over the the next weeks and months to make sure that you have the courage to lead Australia in an energy revolution to invest in energy, in renewable energy and to phase out the use of coal in this country," he said.
