Climate report avoids targets and timelines

“Last year the Australian Business Roundtable on Climate Change showed deep cuts in emissions are feasible and affordable and delaying action is more expensive.

“We welcome the task group’s recommendation that an emissions trading scheme should cover a range of sectors, not just electricity generation, and that certificates should be auctioned, not given away to polluters.

“It is now time for Government and Opposition to commit to developing an emissions trading scheme that has as its primary objective putting Australia on track to avoiding dangerous climate change.”

A two-page briefer assessing the emissions trading proposal from the Australian state governments and the PM’s task group recommendations is attached.
