Climate Change and South Australia

29 October 2015

The South Australian government recently finalised a series of community workshops on “Developing a New Climate Change Strategy for South Australia”.

Five consultation papers, an Overview paper, and a Low Carbon Investment Plan were included. The five consultation papers were ;

                                Adapt     Lead     Reduce     Innovate     Carbon Neutral Adelaide

The common thread through all these papers was “how to make climate change an economic benefit”. This is my view of course, but it is unmistakeable.

Climate Change is the greatest threat to South Australia in the coming decades; it will affect the children born today, and it will most likely show its awfulness in the lifetime of those born 50 years ago. 

So it was with deep concern that the Climate Change Strategy documents avoided THE MOST NECESSARY ACTION that should be taken.
