Days for 'clean coal' are over: Climate Institute head John Connor

9 Mar 2017
Description

After twelve years of advocating for climate policy action in Australia, the Climate Institute will close it's doors in June, blaming a lack of funds.

He says that the re-emergence of the ideological divide on climate and energy policy under Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has been 'one of our major disappointments' and the government's climate and energy policies are "not sustainable".

"We're disappointed by the politics and squabbling, in that sense it's been a lost decade."

John Connor is the chief executive of the Climate Institute.
