The UN IPCC Special Report on Oceans and Cryosphere (or frozen areas) in a Changing Climate is a science reality check for the Prime Minister and the members of his climate-denying government.
There is no beating around the bush, the IPCC’s findings are confronting and dangerous for Australia’s future, especially our treasured coastline.
Just a few of the projected findings include:
This report comes in the week our Prime Minister purposely avoided addressing the UN climate summit in New York, even though he was already in the USA.
It follows David Attenborough shaming the Morrison Government’s lack of climate action saying, “You are the keepers of an extraordinary section of the surface of this planet, including the Barrier Reef, and what you say, what you do, really, really matters.”
As well as Scott Morrison’s Government being described as climate denialist by UN Climate Summit observes.
We even witnessed members of Scott Morrison’s government, including George Christensen, attack 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg.
After hundreds of thousands of students, young Australians and businesses rallied for climate action last week the release of this report could, and should, be the wake up call the Morrison Government needs to address their woefully inadequate emissions reduction target and climate change policy.
But going on their past performance, the Morrison Government will continue to dismiss, deny and mislead on climate, confirming they are little more than a bad joke in Australia and on the global stage.
