The Deakins 2010 - Politics of Climate Change


Effective climate policy must affect decisions on matters as apparently disparate as energy, economics, transport, infrastructure, investment and the environment. And this msut be at a local, state, national and international level. It needs to achieve continuity beyond short term electoral cycles. it is likely to involve some cost for current electorates to reduce the xosts on future generations when the ties somr of us feel to future generations may be week. How can a new politics of climate change help create the democatic case and will for change? How can new political leadership forge the political space for effective policy in Australia and elsewhere? Is this perhaps the hardest challenge of all? (Source: The Deakins Brochure)
