Australia losing the race on climate change: not even at the races

Martin Rice writes in The Conversation (10.11.14) that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change ‘has reminded us that deep cuts in emissions are needed if we are to keep global warming within 2C this century. The international community will have an opportunity to get serious about climate change at the UN Climate Summit in Paris in December 2015. Before that, of course, is this month’s G20 Summit. Host nation Australia has a duty to contribute to global efforts to tackle climate change, but at the moment it’s not at the races and is no longer a top dog’.
