On climate-security risks, Australia missing in action

Former leaders of our defence forces are today calling it out – climate change now represents the greatest threat to the future and security of Australians.

Our earth is already too hot and climate change is already dangerous. Fossil fuel emissions must be reduced to zero at emergency speed. The goal of net zero emissions by 2050 is wholly inadequate; decarbonisation must be reached as close to 2030 as possible.

Accelerating renewables to secure energy resilience in a conflicted world is critical for Australia and Australia has no credible climate policy leaving our nation unprepared for increasingly harsh impacts.

Read the full statement here from our most respected defence personnel, now retired and able to speak out.
