Zero emissions in 10 years for $8 a week

Given the absolute lack of climate change policy on offer by the major party I thought it would be good to raise yet another good paper who’s findings are endorsed by the international energy agency as valid and realistic. The plan essentially outlines a road map that would enable to move to 100% renewable energy withing a time frame of ten years at a very very small $8 per household per week.

Imagine how easy this plan would be to sell to the public?

The paper basically covers the following points

>Australia’s energy is provided entirely from renewable sources at the end of the transition period.

>All technological solutions employed are from proven, reliable technology which is commercially available.

>The security and reliability of Australia’s energy supply is maintained or enhanced by the transition.

>Food and water security are maintained or enhanced by the transition.

>Australians continue to enjoy a high standard of living.

>Social equity is maintained or enhanced by the transition.

>Other environmental indices are maintained or enhanced by the transition.

The full report is here so if you get time or are interested please read it
