From the Secretary of the Environment:
Peer-reviewed scientific research states that the rapid warming is substantially due to the methane,
nitrous oxide, and fossil fuel emissions we produce. Across the planet, people, plants, animals and
also diseases are on the move, searching for habitats in which to thrive, escaping erratic and extreme
weather events which deliver too much rain, too little rain, searing summer temperatures, colder
By 2050, we are committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80%,
compared to 1990 levels. Since 1990 we have cut emissions by 42%. Collectively, collaboratively, we
have the potential to protect and enhance our environment.
The answers lie in support for greater
scientific investment and innovation.
