The Australia Institute

released 12 September 2018

The decade of policy uncertainty on climate change and energy seems set to continue, but the results from Climate of the Nation make it clear the public is way ahead of its government.
Concern about the impacts of climate change is growing, Australians overwhelmingly support clean, renewable energy and the orderly phasing out of coal-fired power, they continue to want to see Australia play a leading role in tackling climate change and they do not think government is doing enough.
