Since countries came together in 2015 to sign the Paris Agreement, the whole world has been moving towards net-zero emissions. The goal of keeping global warming to under 1.5% by 2050 is becoming more important every single day. Industries, companies and the public are doing incredible things all over Australia to do their part. Every day, there are stories about new innovative ways people are reducing emissions.
Unfortunately, the reality is that the Australian Government is not doing its fair share. The fossil fuel industry and the Government seem intent on putting up roadblock after roadblock in front of us.
Even our Covid-19 recovery was said to be “gas-fired”. This is despite the overwhelming evidence to focus on a green recovery fueled by renewables. We know renewable energy is the future, so why are we investing so much of our tax payers money in the problem and not the solution?
