Emission Impossible Ltd has lodged a submission to the Environment Select Committee on the Climate Change Response (Zero Carbon) Amendment Bill.
We strongly support the intent of this Bill to safeguard the liveability of the Earth for future generations. However, we are concerned that in its current form it will not limit warming to 1.5°C by 2050.
We agree with the proposed changes to the current Climate Change Response Act 2002 as they relate to Sections 3, 3A, 4 and 4A. However, we request changes to the new Parts 1A to 1C around the Climate Change Commission, emission reduction and adaptation. We also highlight additional matters that need to be addressed in the Bill and its implementation.
