A Two-Step Plan for Australia to Shepherd in Sustainability

 
Australian climate change think-tank Beyond Zero Emissions has released a two-part plan for Australia to move away from dirty fossil fuels and lead the world on sustainable energy practices.

The report, Laggard to Leader, recommends addressing fossil fuel consumption by “imposing a moratorium on new coal and gas developments; convening immediate negotiations among coal and gas importers and exporters; using experts on public health, security, social and environmental grounds to make the case for a fossil fuel phase-out.”

To bring Australia to the forefront of renewable energy, the report advocates for “rolling out more than 40 gigawatts of concentrating solar thermal through Australia over the next 10 years; establishing a system of feed-in tariffs; contributing $3 billion per annum to renewable technology research.”
