The Victorian Government’s target to halve climate pollution this decade puts the state at the forefront of Australia’s response to the climate crisis.
“Victoria is leading by example and now it’s up to other states and the Federal Government to catch up.” Nature Conservation Council Chief Executive Chris Gambian said.
“Climate action is most urgently needed in those states where the bulk of Australia’s emissions are being produced — NSW, Victoria and Queensland” Mr Gambian said.
“Bushfires, heatwaves and sea level rise will only get worse unless all governments follow the best available science to meet our Paris commitments and help ensure global temperatures do not rise by more than 1.5 degrees”
“That’s going to require much more ambition from all Australian governments, including Victoria.”
