“Community, institutional and corporate leadership, in its own self-interest, is essential, as politics will never lead on an issue this complex. Corporates, investors, the community and the professions need to take up these issues as a priority, given that, even today, they are fundamentally changing every policy arena”
Ian Dunlop – in his presentation at Engineers Australia’s Climate Action Seminar on 25 February 2017.

“If we wait for catastrophe to happen, as we are doing, it will be too late to act. Time is the most important commodity; to avoid catastrophic outcomes requires emergency action to force the pace of change. Australia, along with the Asian regions to our north, is now considered to be “disaster alley”; we are already experiencing the most extreme impacts globally. In these circumstances, opening up a major new coal province is nothing less than a crime against humanity.”

“Unless global warming is addressed on an emergency basis a healthy global environment and economy will not be possible. The climate and energy interaction means conventional economic growth cannot continue. On the other hand, the societal benefits, investment and commercial opportunities in creating the low-carbon economy are unprecedented.”
