Environment, economy and climate change

I was part of a discussion panel on this issue on Triple J’s current affairs show Hack on Tuesday night, concentrating particularly on the economic implications of setting a target for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. There were some interesting perspectives.

You can listen to it here on the Hack website (and I’m on about 21 and a half minutes into the show, if you’re interested!).

well said.

I particularly agree with your comment (loosely paraphrasing) that the environment and the economy are inseparable. It is silly to look at the economy without considering where we're going to do business.

I was also impressed with the comments overall, people seem to get the issue, and I think if we are going to move forward on the issue of climate change we need to be prepared to make some changes, as you said doing nothing is still something.

Thanks Vincenze.

Yes, there were a lot of thoughtful comments. It was encouraging.

yeah man, economy n climate are stuff really close. Should think more our acts: basically we waste money and we deteriorate the environment simultaneously. Should think of switching off lights regularly:
Sounds so stupid but, that does it!!!
