UnitingJustice Australia has made a submission to the Senate Standing Committees on Environment and Communication in response to the Government’s Direct Action Plan. The Uniting Church believes that Australia needs to be a leader in the Asia-Pacific region in mitigating climate change. It questions the Government’s ability to achieve vital reductions to emissions through the Direct Action Policy, having deep reservations on the plan's short and long term efficacy.
