Most Believe Costs of Climate Inaction Greater than Action

Posted on: Tue 22 Mar 2022

The Australian Conservation Foundation recently commissioned a survey of over 15000 Australians to find out attitudes to climate action and the costs and benefits associated with it. The survey found that attitudes are changing, and now most people believe the costs of inaction will be greater than costs of climate action. This throws out a challenge to the Federal Government who are trying to talk up the costs of phasing out fossil fuels. Barry Mitchell spoke to ACF’s CEO Kelly O’Shanassy about the survey.
