Ahead of the upcoming Australian elections, Climate Analytics has analysed the global warming implications of the 2030 climate targets of the political parties and independents: the LNP, the Labor Party (ALP), the Teal Independents (the Zali Steggall Bill), and the Greens.

The results are stark, showing the LNP targets are consistent with 3˚C of global warming (bordering on 4˚C), the ALP’s target is consistent with 2˚C, and the Teal Independents and Greens consistent with 1.5˚C of warming.
