Cutting Emissions

I’m very much in favour of cutting emissions but I found the headline of this article


to be somewhat inconsistent with its own facts

The Federal Government estimates replacing the old bulbs with compact fluorescents in homes could cut greenhouse gas emissions by as much as 800,000 tonnes a year in 2008-12. Australia’s emissions in 2004 totalled 564.7 million tonnes.

That 0.14% could hardly constitute a slashing.
