Blame and Shame time – climate literacy void in the offices of the policy makers

Young people rank their literacy on Climate Change very highly yet

Australia’s global ranking on progress towards meeting the UN Sustainable Development Goals continues to be dragged down due to a lack of meaningful policies on climate change. Source

Climate Literacy

While Australia scored highly on indicators relating to poverty, health and well-being, education, clean water and sanitation, and economic performance – explaining its overall ranking of 37 – that ranking was dragged down by poor scores in environmental indicators.

Australia scored poorly on development issues relating to pollution, particularly those related to the use of cleaner forms of energy.

Major deficiencies were identified for indicators relating to ‘responsible consumption and production’ as well as climate action and the emissions intensity of its electricity system.

What do you think? Time for our politicians to go back to school and work on their eco-literacy

There is so much frustration out there and like many I thought a Malcolm Turnbull led government would take the lead on real Climate Action. I am disappointed. Australian farmers en masse are disappointed

How do we get our messages across in a respectful way.

How do we make our point without more #asupol bashing.

Perhaps a little humour
