Victorian Energy Minister Lily D’Ambrosio signs climate emergency declaration

Lily D’Ambrosio MP for Mill Park, Minister for Energy

The Victorian Minister for Energy signed on to the climate emergency declaration.

At the Brunswick prepoll station for the Victorian election the Energy Minister Lily D’Ambrosio was handing out How to Vote cards for Brunswick Labor Candidate Cindy O’Connor.

As Cindy has already signed the climate emergency declaration, I asked Ms D’Ambrosio if she would consider signing the declaration. After a short period considering the request, she accepted and signed the declaration.

Victoria is taking steps to lead on climate change action, according to the Victorian Premier Dan Andrews. In an announcement on Thursday the Premier said an independent review of the Climate Change Act 2010 would be established to report to the government before 31 December 2015, and tabled in early 2016 along with a Government response.

Environment Minister Lisa Neville said “Climate change is already happening, and it is threatening to irreversibly affect our communities, our environment and our way of life.”

The committee will propose options to strengthen the Act, so it can provide a strong foundation for Victorian action on climate change. The original Act was passed with the support of opposition parties. After the election of the Baillieu Government most of the measures and targets were wound back or abolished in the legislation.
