The Paris climate agreement and implications for Australia


  1. Improve initial post-2020 pollution reduction target and commit to net zero emissions before 2050;
  2. Expand domestic policies and, in particular, have a plan to replace existing coal-fired power plants;
  3. Increase “climate finance” investment to assist vulnerable countries; and
  4. Cancel our “Kyoto carryover” of surplus carbon credits.

    Environment Minister Hunt, again, tries to tell us our emissions are nothing to worry about. Graph above shows we’re tracking to be worst in G20 except for Saudi Arabia.
