What Could a Good Climate Action Bill Look Like?
20 Aug 2022
Nic Seton, Chief Executive of Parents for Climate Action, has welcomed the release today of the NSW Environment Protection Agency’s draft climate action plan.
“This announcement, a consequence of Bushfire Survivors for Climate Action’s landmark win in the Land and Environment Court last year, is a critical development to ensure carbon emissions are reduced, with greenhouse gases being treated like other pollutants.” Nic Seton said.
In particular Parents for Climate Action has been pleased to see that the EPA wants to hear from young people on its draft plan, as it noted (p 17) “Young people (and generations to come) will be affected more by climate change than older Australians alive today.”
“Extreme weather events are becoming more frequent and intense,” said Nic Seton.
"We need to protect our families and communities across Australia. That means cutting our carbon emissions this decade.”
“We can reduce our emissions by investing in renewable energy which will help keep our communities safe and provide much-needed jobs in regional areas.”Share Tweet
