Tasmanian State Election – climate facts

This week Climate Tasmania is releasing a series of Fact Sheets to help clarify the need for appropriate, well considered climate policies in the state election context.

We are not politically aligned and are not recommending specific policies for the state election on May 1. However climate change has many technical aspects and we therefore feel that it is important for political representatives and voters to be informed of the facts.

Please click on menu items at the head of this page to understand our role as an advisory body.
