Quiet Australians Stand Up

The Biden administration has been in office less than a week but is already taking significant action on climate change.John Kerry, Biden’s Climate Envoy, has spoken out on some harsh truths. He has warned that under current Paris commitments, we will experience 3.7 degrees of warming, far above the targetted 1.5-2 degrees, and so every country must increase their targets as the Paris Agreement requires. Secondly, he has warned that the 2019-20 Australian bushfires were a warning that we are losing the war against climate change. And thirdly, he has warned that expansion of gas infrastructure is dangerous and ill-informed. In one speech, one week into the job, Kerry has stated three inescapable truths that our own federal government refuse to say.

May be an image of text that says ""The problem with gas is if we build out a huge infrastructure for gas now and continue to use it as the bridge fuel when we haven't really exhausted the other possibilities, were going to be stuck with stranded assets in 10, 20, 30 years. And gas is primarily methane. The fact is methane methane is 20 times damaging, if not more, than fossil fuels." John Kerry, US Climate Envoy, 27 January 2021"
