Australia Institute climate expert Richie Merzian says he is not surprised that Australia has been ranked last in a survey of 193 members of the United Nations in terms of action taken to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. He says the federal government has no climate and energy policy, instead preferring to cherry-pick technologies, many of which support the fossil fuel industry. Australia’s last-place ranking on climate action was contained in a report on progress towards global sustainable development goals, with Australia ranking 35th in that area.
