Where now for Australia’s Climate Change Authority?

In the wake of Bernie Fraser’s resignation from the Climate Change Authority, Professor Clive Hamilton, in The Conversation (14.9.15), asks where the future lies for the Authority:

‘For more than a year the Government has chosen not to replace the four members who resigned soon after it took office. There is a logic to this – after all, it has said it has no confidence in the Authority, so why spend public funds on new appointments? And perhaps the most relevant question is: who would agree to be appointed by the government in such a situation anyway?
