The primary obligation of the Australian government is to serve the Australian people. This means that policies should only be enacted where they are in Australia’s national interest, argues Daniel Wild in this report.
Australia will have to prevent close to two years' worth of emissions from reaching the atmosphere if it's to meet the government's climate targets for 2030.
That's the view of environmental groups, based on the most recent emissions data just released by the federal...
This resource discusses the history of the New Zealand government policy-making process in relation to the Emissions Trading Scheme.
Emissions trading can be a powerful tool for helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. An ETS transforms a regulatory limit on emissions into an emissions...
Emissions grew 1.3 per cent over FY15 – the first increase in fiscal year emissions since 2005-06, ten years ago, when Australian emissions reached their historic peak, according to this report.
Summary The government’s latest emissions projections were released in late December, along...

Summary: The Working Group III contribution to the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report (WGIII AR5) provides a comprehensive assessment of all relevant options for mitigating climate change through limiting or preventing greenhouse gas emissions, as well as activities that remove them from the atmosphere....
One fifth of greenhouse gas emissions in Australia are generated by the everyday activities of households (Commonwealth of Australia 2005a). Higher consumer awareness of the impact of housing on the environment (Commonwealth of Australia 2003, 2005b) and of sustainable housing alternatives (The State of Queensland...
Arctic feedbacks accelerate climate change through carbon releases from thawing permafrost and higher solar absorption from reductions in the surface albedo, following loss of sea ice and land snow. Here, the authors include dynamic emulators of complex physical models in the integrated assessment model PAGE-ICE...
