Climate change is the issue

Greg Bourne on ABC’s AM program:

If the Government were to convene an inquiry which was to look at how could we quickly reduce our emissions to 60 per cent below what we currently have by 2050, and how could we do that as expeditiously as possible, then I, and a number of others, I think, would jump at that inquiry.

But the Government has not been prepared to have that sort of inquiry. As I repeat, this is really an inquiry about the nuclear industry, and it’s about economics. It’s not about the environment.

The real issue, I repeat, is about climate change and the fact that we are just not doing enough about it.
