Australian parties sidetrack CO2 threat | Climate News Network

Australian parties sidetrack CO2 threat | Climate News Network | Fd | Scoop.it

In the long and bruising campaign that has led up to the federal elections in Australia, the governing Australian Labor Party and the conservative Coalition challengers have both chosen to sidetrack the crucial issue of reducing CO2 emissions.

 

Concerns about changes in climate are widespread in Australia. Swathes of the country have been battered in recent years by costly  cyclones and floods, and there has been long-lasting drought in many areas and a series of devastating bushfires. Many lives have been lost, and the economic damage caused has been considerable.

 

Earlier this month, Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology declared the August 2012 to August 2013 period the hottest 12 months on record.

 

Yet in this election campaign, both parties have tended to shy away from promising any meaningful action aimed at tackling climate change issues −  in particular, reducing the country’s CO2 emissions, which, on a per capita basis, are among the highest in the world.

 

Oil and gas production and mining are major industries in Australia. Booming mining exports, particularly of coal to energy-hungry China and India, have fuelled 10 years of sustained economic growth.

 

Latest figures show that Australia, described by some as “Asia’s quarry”, has CO⊃2; emissions of 18.4 tonnes per capita − a figure higher than in the US, and almost three times the figure in the UK.
