Written by and
26 October 2018

Our new research brief provides ten points about the Paris Climate Agreement.

The binding international emissions reduction obligations imposed on Australia by the Paris Climate Agreement will result in significant and irreparable economic and social costs without producing a discernible environmental benefit.

Australia is not “on track” to meet the Paris emission reduction obligations despite extensive and prolonged government intervention in the energy market that has resulted in Australia having the fourth highest electricity prices in the developed world.

The government should withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement immediately.
