Integrity and the Climate Change Authority

by Polly Hemming and Rod Campbell

The scientific consensus is on the urgent need for rapid decarbonisation. However, the government’s key climate body the Climate Change Authority (CCA) is instead focussed on storing fossil fuels and developing the carbon offset industry.

The CCA’s chair and other members are involved in the carbon offset and fossil fuel industries. Polling shows that 76% of Australians expect the CCA to be chaired by a climate scientist and 75% expect its members to be free of potential conflicts of interest.
