|2UE's Mike Smith|
Mike first presented this on 4BC in Brisbane; Mike used the new kilometre-long Brisbane Gateway Bridge rather than the Sydney Harbour Bridge used by Galileo in this wonderful YouTube presentation.
Andrew Bolt reported Mike's editorial here.
Mike's editorial ended:
The last 38 centimetres of the kilometre – that’s carbon dioxide.
A bit over one foot.
97% of that is produced by Mother Nature. It’s natural.
Out of our journey of one kilometre, there are just 12 millimetres left. About half an inch. Just over a centimetre.
That’s the amount of carbon dioxide that global human activity puts into the atmosphere.
And of those 12 millimetres Australia puts in .18 of a millimetre.
Less than the thickness of a hair. Out of a kilometre.
