Australians put heads in the sand for Bondi Beach climate protest
The unique protest idea to make a stand against climate change by sticking heads in the sand has spread to Australia’s most famous beach.
Leaders of the G20 nations are meeting in Brisbane, Australia starting this weekend, and it is the first such meeting in years not to include climate change on the agenda. Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott says he wants the meeting to focus on other topics, such as “economic growth,” instead. Abbott’s government scrapped Australia’s carbon tax, and has replaced it with a grants system to encourage companies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
