I’m the convenor of VOTE CLIMATE ONE
. Our electorate voting guides are not live yet but you can get an idea of what the Traffic Light campaign is about on our website. https://voteclimateone.org.au/
The climate policy of your party has some real merit. Nevertheless we would like to dig a little deeper before our team decides on the climate assessment of your party.
Here are the nuts and bolts of our assessment process…
Our panel will assess each can each party or candidate against three foundational questions:
Do you endorse a national declaration of an Ecological and Climate Emergency?
Do you support aiming for zero emissions by 2030?
Tackling the problems associated with an overheated planet will impact more on some sections of society than others. Do you endorse the principle of climate justice for all Australians?
Climate Score Cards
Many other groups like the Victorian Climate Action Network are comprehensively examining climate policies and producing score cards. We will use this information to inform our traffic light allocation beyond the three questions above.
Parties and sitting members will be assessed on their historic contribution to action on global warming in the national parliament. This record in government is particularly relevant when assessing the LNP
Allocation of a candidate or party’s preference will also inform our decision. This criteria is particularly relevant to late nominations and dummy candidates.
Parliament of national unity
Some traffic light decisions will be influenced by the conviction that climate action would be better served by a minority government in the lower house of the Federal parliament. The two major parties have not earned our trust on climate action.
