CLIMATE ACTION

The future of Australia’s economy, security and biodiversity is dependent on strong Climate Leadership.

70% of two way trade is with countries who have committed to net zero by 2050

This means; the markets that have underwritten our prosperity for generations are changing, and they’re doing it quickly. This is the time to embrace a low carbon global economy and lead with strong evidence based policy so that we can ensure economic prosperity for all Australians into the future.

The Indo-Pacific region that Australia belongs to risks displacement of millions of people due to climate change-related extreme weather events, heatwaves, droughts, rising seas and floods. 

This will not only exacerbate the traditional regional security threats but also lead to new threats including food insecurity and humanitarian disasters that will threaten our national capacities, commitments and resilience.

I WILL ADVOCATE FOR:

  • Zali Steggall’s  – Climate Change (National Framework for Adaptation and Mitigation) Bill 2020  ← Can this please be a hyperlink to Climate Act Now
  • Ambitious interim emissions targets that are reflective of scientific evidence.
  • Incentives to accelerate the take up of electric vehicles and provision of required infrastructure.
  • The establishment of community owned renewable energy projects for the Mornington Peninsula because we are entitled to an infinite supply of cheap, clean and locally generated power. Let’s get Flinders off the grid!
  • Supercharge our transition to a zero carbon economy to create jobs and safeguard our kids’ future.
