Why Does it Matter

Climate action is critically important for Australia and the world at large. The country is particularly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, including more frequent and severe droughts, heatwaves, and bushfires. These events have devastating consequences for the environment, people's health, and the economy. Climate action is necessary to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and limit global warming to prevent the worst impacts of climate change. Australia has pledged to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050, but significant action is needed to achieve this goal.

Investment in renewable energy, improvements to energy efficiency, and the implementation of policies to encourage a shift towards low-carbon lifestyles are all necessary steps. Failure to take action now will lead to further damage to Australia's environment, economy, and society, and contribute to the growing global climate crisis.
