Australia is still a climate fossil

The Fossil of the Day awards are given each day at the UN climate talks. They are a great way for climate activists to expose who has done their best that day to spoil the climate talks.

At the 2014 climate talks, Australia won so many Fossil of the Day awards, that they were dubbed the Fossil of the Year (or the Colossal Fossil). And the same in 2013! Believe me, this is not an award that we should be winning.

This year, Australia is doing better. It took us 10 days to pick up a Fossil of the Day award (shared with Argentina).

On December 10, the Fossil of the Day award was given to the Umbrella Group (a coalition of some non-EU developed countries, including Australia) along with the European Union. Check out the award ceremony here.

Australia also came THIRD LAST out of 58 countries on the 2015 Climate Change Performance Index. Clearly Australian climate activists must keep up the pressure on the Australian government. We are still one of the worst climate laggards.

This is the current C02 in our atmosphere. We need to get it below 350 for a safe climate.
