When is enough, enough?
With decisions about how to divvy up the carbon tax dollars happening right now I thought I'd better stay on topic with the never ending saga that climate change has become and will be for the rest of our lives.
The report released May 23, 2011 is yet another peer reviewed scientific publication that confirms the reality of climate change in our lives today. Click here for the key messages.
Both sides of politics are attempting to use it to support their policies on climate change action. The Coalition is really clutching at straws in support of their “direct action” approach.
This report and commentary from many other international scientists have picked this decade as the make or break period for which we must take decisive significant action to decarbonise our economies.
Risk evaluation is an integral part of any business decision yet when it comes to climate change policy and action politics, science (or lack of science as is more often the case) and emotions seem to drive the decision-making process rather than straight forward risk analysis. Such a shame.
I have talked about how climate risk will affect your business in previous posts and I will talk about it again in future posts but I'd love to hear what you're concerns are regarding climate change and the looming carbon tax.
