Australia was being half-hearted and gutless about climate change, South Australian Premier Mike Rann said today.

Mr Rann called for a special Council of Australian Government (COAG) meeting on climate change to be held within months.

"In that meeting, as Australian leaders, we should seek an agreement that seriously tackles climate change and commits Australia to ratification of the Kyoto protocol," Mr Rann said today.
