Add your name to Friends of the Earth petition
After years of denial and delay, it’s wonderful to have a federal government which understands the need to act decisively on climate change. The federal ALP has increased the embarrassing emissions reduction target of 26-28% by 2030 that the Coalition had set. They have committed to a 2030 target of 43%.
Sadly, we know that this is not consistent with what the climate science says is required to avoid catastrophic global warming. Research from Climate Analytics showed that, if enacted at the global level, the 43% cut would take us beyond 2°C of warming.
Add your name to our call for a stronger national 2030 climate target.
