Renewable energy and emissions reduction targets

Frank Jotzo (The Conversation 12.8.15) considers the Government’s emissions recently-announced reduction target:

‘Given the widespread perception that the Australian government looks out for the interests of the fossil fuel industry ahead of all else, the target announcement could be seen as step towards meaningful engagement on climate change.

‘In the eyes of the world we might just have reclaimed our traditional position as laggard in international climate change efforts, moving up a rung or two from presumed recalcitrant. There’s still quite a way to go on that ladder.’
