A Whimsical Pledge

Following on from the last piece, wouldn't this make an interesting addition to the pledgebank?

"I, Kevin Rudd, will commit my government to policies intended to make Australia a net carbon neutral emitter by 2050, but only if the leaders of nations whose combined GDP exceed five times that of Australia will agree to do so as well."
Why five? It worked for me once before!

Maybe I'll suggest it to the 2020 summit?

Oh well, one can hope!
(Update: there is another wiki where one may contribute such things: 2020 summit
Take your pick)

For this idea and others, when I first heard about the Summit, I created a wiki for the 20,699,000 of us that are not invited. It’s at It’s free and you don’t have to register if you don’t want to. At the site, you can post your own ideas under a dozen different categories, discuss other people’s ideas, and vote on the best ones. There’s even a place to sign an online petition to the Prime Minster to get these ideas heard at the Summit. It’s taking advantage of teh best the web and online community has to offer, spurring a two-way conversation that can accomodate 21 million people.

To act as an viral advertisement, I also created a YouTube video of the Prime Minister breakdancing. Check that out at

Let me know what you think. Always open to good ideas.
