Setting Australia's Post - 2020 Emission Targets

April 2015
Alan Pears, Advisor to Climate Alliance has made a submission to the Government on the subject of Australia’s post 2020 greenhouse gas emission targets. His submission contends that the time has arrived for Australia to take bold action in cutting greenhouse emissions, rather than devoting effort to minimum action for compliance, or making excuses for “special consideration” by the rest of the world. Alan’s submission shows Australia has the capacity to take strong action so as to place itself in a position of strength to manage the economic impacts and capture the economic benefits from exceeding international expectations on emission abatement.
