Climate Action Now - What's this all about?
The Qld Government has a target of a 30% cut in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 (from 2005 levels) and net-zero emissions by 2050.
We're not currently on track to meet these targets. Official figures show that Queensland’s greenhouse gas emissions increased by 8% between 2014 and 2018 and were only 8.7% below 2005 levels by 2018.
The Qld Environment Minister promised that, if re-elected, they would develop a Climate Action Plan during this term to set out how they will meet the 2030 target and address other climate issues.
The Federal Government is refusing to commit to net zero emissions by 2050. It doesn’t have a policy for energy transition, and is continuing to support subsidies for gas and even coal power stations that would increase emissions, not reduce them.
Right now we need to demonstrate that Queenslanders want bold action on climate. We want our State and Federal MP's to see a flurry of Climate Action Now signs wherever they go in Queensland - so they have no doubt this issue matters to Queensland.
