Climate change ‘mitigation’ strategies must be economically rational

When it comes to working towards “mitigating” climate change, it must be done in an “economically rational” manner that does not come at the expense of both the economy and the people, according to Sky News contributor Caleb Bond.

“When it comes to climate change and doing things that might mitigate climate change – in the front of our minds needs to be whether what we do is economically advantageous to our country,” he told Sky News Host Peter Gleeson.

“Now if what Scott Morrison is looking at is a system whereby we invest in technology that has the benefit of creating jobs and creating industry at the same time as perhaps working towards this target – that would make sense.

“We have to do things in an economically rational manner.

“There is nothing wrong with moving towards renewable energy and things that might benefit the environment but we can’t do it at the expense of our own people and we can’t do it at the expense of our own economy."
