Australia signed up for the second round of the Kyoto Protocol at the Doha Talks on climate change that ended on the weekend.

Since then, Australia's Climate Change Minister, Greg Combet, has denied a report that Australian taxpayers will have to pay an annual bill of Three-Billion US dollars to a fund to help developing nations adapt to climate change.

Australia's opposition leader, Tony Abbott is dismissing the fund as a politically correct cause.
