ACTU president Ged Kearney conceded jobs would be lost as the economy moved away from coal and towards newer technology. But the whole purpose of the renewable energy target was to encourage new investment and create new jobs... Labor is leading again on renewable energy
Many Australian organisations are forced to look at best practice on a global level when it comes to sustainable business, as the federal government remains relatively disengaged on environmental issues. "Australia spends more than $120 billion a year on energy – that's a 67 per cent increase over 10 years. With the right equipment, businesses can lower energy and operating costs, cut heating, cooling and lighting bills, and even create energy from waste." Future Business Challenges Sustainability
The report presents an in-depth analysis of the renewable energy
policies across the major countries in North and South America namely
the US, Canada, Argentina, Brazil and Mexico. It also presents the major
renewable policy frameworks in place in some of the major states in the
US and Canada. The report provides the current and future renewable
energy targets and plans along with the present policy framework, giving
a fair idea of overall growth potential of their renewable energy
industry. The report also provides major technology specific policies
and incentives provided in each of these countries. The report also
provides insights to major policy initiatives for the market development
of renewable energy sources such as wind, solar, geothermal, biopower
In an opinion piece published in Fairfax Media, Conservative UK MP Richard Benyon criticised PM Tony Abbott's leadership on the issue of climate change. Australia's climate change stance is "incomprehensible" and "profoundly un-conservative" ...

“This article is an initial exploration of what the history of environmental
law can learn from the arts. Looking at visual art (mainly paintings, with some
drawings, prints, photographs, and poster art), supplemented by occasional
glances in the direction of literary works, it asks what, if anything we can
learn about the environmental law of the industrialized West of nineteenth and
twentieth centuries before 1970, when environmental problems certainly abounded
but before there was “environmental law”. The focus is on pollution law,
especially air pollution, with some attention paid also to land use law
In Germany the Energiewende has two main policy tools: generous support for renewable sources of energy, and an exit from nuclear power by 2022. The government supports renewables by promising those who install solar panels or finance windmills a fixed, above-market price for each kilowatt-hour of energy they feed into the grid. Those renewable sources have grid priority, meaning they must by law be drawn upon before other energy sources, like electricity from coal, gas or nuclear plants.
AUSTRALIA has the highest rate of climate sceptics among the world’s advanced countries, beating the US and the UK, according to a new university study. The University of Tasmania research published in the international journalGlobal Environmental Change this month found Australia topped the list in a study of 14 advanced countries.
