What Will Happen to the Economy if We Don’t Stop Climate Change?
The Australian Conservation Foundation has reported that our emissions will increase without urgent action.
According to the ACF fact sheet, released earlier this week, besides failing our Paris Climate Accords Commitments, Australian emissions will actually increase by 8.6% when excluding land-use and forestry emissions.
The economic impacts of breaching the internationally-agreed limit of 1.5 degrees and falling behind the rest of the world on transitioning our energy mix away from fossil fuels are predicted to be critical and far-reaching.
Jack Berkefeld spoke with Matt Rose, Economics Program Manager for the ACF to learn of these risks and how we should mitigate them.
