Scott Morrison and climate change policy North Coast Voices


On 8 October 2018 the UN International Panel On Climate Change issued this media release:


Incheon, Republic of Korea, October 8 Limiting global warming to 1.5C would require rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society, the IPCC said in a new assessment. With clear benefits to people and natural ecosystems, limiting global warming to 1.5C compared to 2C could go hand in hand with ensuring a more sustainable and equitable society, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said on Monday.

The Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5C was approved by the IPCC on Saturday in Incheon, Republic of Korea. It will be a key scientific input into the Katowice Climate Change Conference in Poland in December, when governments review the Paris Agreement to tackle climate change.

"With more than 6,000 scientific references cited and the dedicated contribution of thousands of expert and government reviewers worldwide, this important report testifies to the breadth and policy relevance of the IPCC," said Hoesung Lee, Chair of the IPCC.

Ninety-one authors and review editors from 40 countries prepared the IPCC report in response to an invitation from the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) when it adopted the Paris Agreement in 2015.

The report's full name is Global Warming of 1.5C, an IPCC special report on the impacts of global warming of 1.5C above pre-industrial levels and related global greenhouse gas emission pathways, in the context of strengthening the global response to the threat of climate change, sustainable development, and efforts to eradicate poverty.

"One of the key messages that comes out very strongly from this report is that we are already seeing the consequences of 1C of global warming through more extreme weather, rising sea levels and diminishing Arctic sea ice, among other changes," said Panmao Zhai, Co-Chair of IPCC Working Group I.

Quotes of the Week North Coast Voices


I fear that the danger of plastic bags is much exaggerated  [Former sacked prime minister & Liberal MP for Warringah Tony Abbott quoted in The Guardian on the subject of plastics polluting the environment, 6 October 2018]

 A key architect of the landmark Paris climate deal has lambasted the Coalition governments inaction on greenhouse gas emissions, saying it goes against the science, squanders economic opportunity and risks Australias international standing. Laurence Tubiana, a respected French diplomat and economist, also says Prime Minister Scott Morrisons claim that Australia will meet its Paris targets at a canter is contradicted by international scientific opinion.  [Journalist Nicole Hasham in The Sydney Morning Herald, 3 October 2018]


To me this particular event seems to show the Liberal party has been taken over frankly by extremists on the hard right who arent particularly motivated to win elections and arent particularly motivated to serve the public. Theyre just motivated by a crazy agenda.  ...
