From higher mortgages to hoarding outdated technologies, how will the government’s current stance on climate change affect the economy for Australians?
For an orderly transition from fossil fuels, Australia needs a carbon price to replace its hodgepodge of clumsy government interventions.
The Paris Agreement desperately needs to be updated. Currently the big exporters take no responsibility for the emissions created when those fossil fuels are burned overseas.
Countries need to acknowledge that they are responsible for the emissions caused by their exports of fossil fuels.
A UNSW Practical Justice Initiative report says the emissions produced annually from the fossil fuels sold by Australia’s major gas, coal and oil producers are larger than the emissions of all Australians.
Twelve power projects are in the running for federal government dollars: six pumped hydro, five gas and one coal. It's clear which one shouldn't be on the list, for economic and environmental reasons.
Scientists have closed the loop on greenhouse gas emissions by turning carbon dioxide back into coal in a low energy, efficient process using liquid metals as catalyst.
A coal mining moratorium would tackle the problem of curbing carbon emissions at its source, writes Jeremy Moss.
The writing is on the wall for coal-fired power in Australia, writes Mark Diesendorf.
South Australia's electricity system could be operated entirely on scaled-up, commercially available renewable energy sources, writes Mark Diesendorf.
