The last month has been another disappointing chapter in the politics of climate change in Australia.
While the Federal Government has recognised the importance of a commitment to net-zero by 2050 emissions target, a refusal to take on greater ambition over the next decade will likely leave Australia isolated and unable to make the most of the economic benefits that come with rapid decarbonisation.
Without a stronger 2030 target, there remains a lack of clarity and positive investment signals to accelerate the decarbonisation of Australia and take advantage of the enormous economic opportunity in play.
Today's announcement does little more than echo the commitments and action already underway by state governments, businesses and households.
