Which country is the world's highest emitter of CO2?
ABC's Fight for Planet A finds that it is.....
Yes, Australia is the world's highest per capita emitter of the greenhouse gas Carbon Dioxide (CO2).
With only .3% of global population and 1.3% of emissions, we are ahead of the USA and China. The UK produces 1/3 and Indonesia 1/10 of our emissions, respectively.
Continuing the theme of easy switches and actions that can be taken at home to reduce both cost and ecological impact, solid soap is an obvious choice over liquid soap.
Last week Merici College was awarded by the ACT government through the Actsmart Schools Program with 5-star accreditation.
This means that we have achieved accreditation in the areas of waste, energy, water, biodiversity, and links to the curriculum.
Merici is the first high school or Year 7-12 school in the ACT to earn this honour.
Merici is also the current ACT Sustainable School of the Year.
Our students aspire to take up their place as young women in our society, who reach out to others and are a powerful voice for those less fortunate. Our College vision statement is Love life, have hope, be faithful and build futures more wondrous than you dare to dream. We challenge students to pave the way for future generations of women - we call it "standing on the shoulders".
