Australia’s state-based race to zero emissions has officially kicked off
Reneweconomy
Fri 13 November, 2020
It would be easy to describe Australia’s government as being backed into a corner on climate, but it’s not quite accurate. As the outcome of the US election solidifies, new net zero pledges for 2050-2060 keep on coming and even more countries begin closer considerations of new targets, it must seem to Australia’s federal leadership that the world is moving away from their own position very, very fast. While remembering that a pledge is far from real-life emissions reductions, the rising tide of market signals and symbolic movements from major players in climate around the world means many more questions to Australia’s leaders.

They have little public profile, not helped by the awkward name. But they are quintessentially Australian, occurring nowhere else in the world.
