There is absolutely no doubt that climate change is occurring and that humans are responsible for it completely. You only need to look at the news at see that natural disasters are occurring more frequently and with much more intensity than ever before. The ice shelves in Greenland, Canada, Alaska and the Antarctic are breaking up which leads to higher sea levels and warmer oceans. This alone is contributing to coral bleaching in our beautiful Great Barrier Reef and means that low-lying island nations are disappearing with frightening speed.
The more we burn fossil fuels the worse it will get.
Australia is uniquely placed to be the leaders in renewables as we have vast amounts of land that enjoy 300+ days of sunshine every year.
I believe that we are nearing the point of no return and if every nation on earth doesn't act quickly than the planet that we leave to our children and their children will be a very different and hostile place to live.
