Earlier this week Tony Abbott released his emissions reduction target which has put Australia well behind countries like the USA, Germany and the UK when it comes to action on climate change. This comes in the lead up to the Paris Climate Change Conference.
Tomorrow I’ll be addressing this issue – and the costs of inaction on climate change – at UNSW. I’d like to invite you to join me at this free event in a discussion about how important reducing emissions and investing in renewables is for our economic growth and job creation.
We can’t afford to let Tony Abbott hold Australia back from doing our part on climate change.
We also need to ensure that Australia takes advantage of the billions of dollars of investment in renewable energy. That’s why I’ve announced that if elected Labor will ensure 50% of our energy comes from renewables by 2030.
Please join me to discuss this and more at the event tomorrow from 10.30 am-11.30 am.
Tickets are free, but RSVPs are essential. You can read more details here, and RSVP here.
I hope to see you there,
