The Critical Decade

This report, created by the Australian Government's recently established "Climate Commission" outlines the case for immediate action in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. It provides a useful and easy-to-understand update of the climate change science and what it may mean for Australia. They state that the "risks have never been clearer and the case for action has never been more urgent. Our Earth’s surface is warming rapidly and we can already see social, economic and environmental impacts in Australia. Failing to take sufficient action today entails potentially huge risks to our economy, society and way of life into the future. This is the critical decade for action."
