DEA recognises that:
- Global health impacts are already occurring as a result of climatically induced environmental change,
- Projections of future climate change are likely to lead to profound health impacts and ultimately unmanageable conditions
- Stationary energy is the single largest contributing sector to greenhouse gas emissions in Australia and globally. Therefore replacing carbon intensive energy generation with low carbon alternatives will be essential in limiting greenhouse gas emissions.
- Wind and solar electricity generation technologies are currently the primary, and probably only, scalable technologies that can be deployed economically in the required time frame
