From press release (PDF; 25 KB):

A new report published today by the Australia Institute questions official figures on Australia's greenhouse gas emissions, which for the basis for the Federal Government's claims that Australia 'remains on track' to meet its Kyoto target.

The report, titled The National Greenhouse Accounts and Land Clearing: Do the numbers stack up?, by the Institute's Deputy Director, Andrew Macintosh, argues that official figures on emissions from land clearing are contradicted by data published by the Queensland government.

"Queensland government estimates of land clearing in Queensland between 1990 and 2001 are approximately 50 percent higher than the Federal Government's estimates. If the Queensland government figures are correct, Australia's total greenhouse emissions may be well above the Kyoto target.
