2016 ACT election: compare climate policies

Voter's choice

With the 2016 ACT Legislative Assembly election coming up on 15 October, the current focus of this site is a side-by-side comparison of the climate-related policies of the ACT Greens, ACT Labor and the Canberra Liberals.

Our climate and you

This is a new website to help non-scientists understand climate change, its relevance to you and what you can do about it.

We put together a comparison of climate-related policies for the 2016 federal election, still available on the federal election page.

What else is on this site?

Want some help understanding what the policies really mean? Check out our blog for commentary.

We are developing some pages about the science of climate change, what it means for you and some actions you can take, but in the meantime if you are looking for information about climate change, check out our list of organisations.

If you prefer a book on the topic, here are a few on a range of aspects.

We will continue adding new content so please follow us on Twitter and Facebook, use the contact form below to subscribe, and visit again soon.
