Queenslanders have been urged to set their fridge temperatures to four degrees celsius to help combat climate change.
Premier Anna Bligh, who launched the initiative at Sea World’s polar bear shores on the Gold Coast, said climate change was everyone’s responsibility. If we had every Queenslander change the temperature of their fridge by one degree, it would be the equivalent of taking 11,000 cars off the road.
A television commercial will screen in the coming months and 50,000 free thermometers will be handed out as part of the campaign.
