Summary for Policy Makers: Submission to the 2017 Review of Climate Change Policies

Pursuit of policies designed to supress emissions of carbon dioxide and other “greenhouse gases” is severely harming the Australian economy with no compensatory environmental benefits. We address this in the context of energy, land clearing and forestry. In the case of energy, measures taken to suppress carbon dioxide emissions have been centred on regulations to promote renewable electricity supply (especially wind and solar). These have, over the past 15 years, transformed Australia from havin

Submission into Inquiry on Impacts of Climate Changes on Marine Fisheries and Biodiversity

Submission to the Australian Senate Environment and Communications Reference Committee, October 2016

If there were

Submission to Senate on Windfarms - Supplementary evidence

Response to written questions on notice for Dr Alan Moran – Regulation Economics from Senator Anne Urquhart 1. In your testimony, you said that work done on fossil fuel subsidies by Treasury has indicated any subsidies are trivial (Hansard, p.24). Can you direct the committee to this work? The following reference http://www.oecd.org/site/tadffss/AUSdata.xls to an OECD review that Treasury oversights shows no support from Australia for coal other than for “clean coal”.
