The Melbourne Sustainable Societies Institute contends that the cost to the economy of carbon emissions reduction are far less than the damage caused by inaction on climate change. In a report released a day after federal government data revealed that Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions rose by 0.8 per cent in the December 2018 quarter, the Institute claims that the Australian economy would be $550 billion better off by 2030 by reducing carbon emissions to curb the impact of climate change.
