With submissions due on 28 November 2011, the “Review of Climate Change Act” is your chance to get your voice heard on Victorian state government climate change policy.
The Climate Change Act 2010 commits Victoria to a 20% reduction in GHG emissions based on 2000 levels.
Clearly the peer-reviewed scientific consensus is that we need to urgently reduce emissions. With the review of the Act state government may remove the 20% target, opting to simply align Victoria with the national 5% target.
An aggressive Victorian climate change target responds to the moral imperative to reduce emissions and also supports Victorian green-collar business.
I’d encourage you to voice your support for a large reduction in Victorian GHG emissions. Visit this page for more info on how you can be heard on this most important issue.
