Climate-Smart Recovery

 

Australia has been a global leader in dealing with both the health and economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. To date this has largely been achieved through the National Cabinet’s demonstration of bipartisan cooperation as well as government decision-making largely based on the advice of medical and other experts. Australia could also become a global leader on addressing climate change because the reality is that the bigger and looming crisis that is climate change has not gone away.

Re-building the economy and re-building from the disruptions to everyday life presents great opportunities to ‘build back better’ with  stimulus packages that promote a climate-smart recovery of a faster transition to renewable energy and zero net carbon emissions.

Building the Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition

 

Carbon pricing is a powerful tool for emissions reduction and is supported by many economists, corporations, industry groups and other experts. It has been adopted in many countries and is considered to be an essential tool for decarbonising the  global economy and giving us a chance of keeping global warming under 2 degrees  Celsius.

Our preferred form of carbon pricing is Carbon Fee and Dividend –  it is simple, efficient and elector-friendly. It provides a powerful price signal to enable and support the many different solutions that are needed to slow and eventually reverse global warming. 

A broad coalition of actors may be the final piece that enables the government to finally accept the utility of adopting a carbon price.

Building the Centre

 

An end to the climate wars and a revival of the political centre in our parliament is essential if we are to adopt climate and energy policies capable of surviving changes of government. Citizens’ Climate Lobby Australia is advocating for more bipartisan cooperation and consensus at the political level through its ‘Building the Centre’ campaign.
