Australia’s economic future rests on avoiding heating of the earth by more than 1.5o Celsius above pre-industrial levels. To achieve this we must transition to a decarbonised economy by reinstating carbon pricing, entering the international carbon trading market, and moving to 100% renewables.

But that won’t be enough. We could reach net zero and still encounter runaway global heating – an economic disaster. To avoid that we need to take a leadership role in Paris Agreement negotiations. See why and how in Episode 6 Part 2 of Australian Community Futures Planning's videocast series on The State of Australia in 2020.
