Australia Power Shifting

The global climate movement has made some big gains in the last couple of weeks thanks to the effort of organisers in Australia.

You might have heard that just last week, the Australian Lower House of Parliament passed a landmark package of legislation to enact a price on carbon. The legislation now only has to make it past the Senate, which because the Greens hold the balance of power is almost certainly guaranteed. Part of the package includes $10 billion for the establishment of the “Clean Energy Finance Corporation” – in a bid to accelerate the deployment and investment in clean energy projects.
