The Coalition’s climate change strategy

The Federal Government and Opposition agree that Australia must reduce its greenhouse gas emissions to 5 per cent below 2000 levels by 2020. They disagree strongly, though, on how to do it. This public discussion will explore the Opposition’s policy with the Shadow Minister for Climate Action, Greg Hunt.

"A Coalition Government will implement a climate change strategy based on direct action to reduce emissions and improve the environment. Under the Direct Action plan, a reverse auction will be used to buy back carbon at the lowest price, such as through revegetation, soil carbon, capturing gas from land fill and energy efficiency. Our policy will deliver significant environmental outcomes without the need for a damaging, economy-wide tax, that no other country has implemented." Shadow Minister for Climate Action, Greg Hunt

DATE & TIME: Monday 19 August, 6.15 to 8.00 pm

Professor Stef Simons, UCL Australia and the IEPI will introduce the guest speaker. Following Mr Hunt's presentation there will be opportunity for questions from the audience. The event will conclude with a networking session over canapes and wine.
