Kevin Rudd the Prime Minister of Australia and leader of the Labor government has been a huge disappointment.

He has been ineffective in dealing with issues such as climate change, aboriginal health, immigration, nuclear power and deforestation.

Dr Freaks says: Do you remember during the last election Kevin Rudd said he was going to be a leader in cutting global greenhouse emissions and stopping climate change.

I told you he wouldnt deliver on his promise he hasnt and he wont because he is beholden to the corporations who pay for his election campaigns - and they dont want environmental costs eating into their fat profits.

Mr Rudd is going to kill the environment. The 5% cut in greenhouse emissions by 2020 that he has proposed is inadequate.

He is handing out billions of dollars in free permits and the most polluting industries get subsidized to keep polluting.

So now the corporations will pocket the money Rudd has given them your money - and they will use the carbon scheme to raise prices and increase profits.

He is afraid the industries will go overseas and take jobs out of Australia. But that is also what all the other governments are saying. This type of competitiveness will destroy the planet. We need to work together.

But Rudd is determined to extract all the coal and exterminate the animals that you share this planet with.

He has gone against the science and betrayed the community, and the next generation who will have to live with the impacts of climate change. Mr Rudd is no leader on climate change he is Mr Extinction.
