Federal Climate policy review (2017) submission by climate groups

DCAN Climate Review Fig 1

We chose not to do our own submission to the Federal Government Climate Policy Review, that closed on May 5, but instead made a few corrections to the Darebin Climate Action submission which focused on arguing we need climate emergency policies put in place. Climate Action Moreland was one of the 29 grassroot community climate and sustainability groups that endorsed the Darebin Climate Action submission (see list at end).

This submission covered the following:

  • Overview
  • The earth is already too hot and global warming is already dangerous.
  • We can burn no more carbon for +1.5oC target.
  • Worse news: The door to less than +2oC is rapidly closing.
  • What action is needed?
  • The Government must declare a climate emergency and enact an emergency speed transition.
  • Showing the way.
  • What is missing is leadership.

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