Why does our 2035 target matter?

If we don't act urgently, future generations - our kids - will face a grim future. By striving for much better than a 2050 target, we could help them avoid the worst of:

  • Catastrophic heatwaves
  • Further sea-level rise, ocean warming and loss of coral reefs
  • Extinction of native animals
  • Bushfires, floods, droughts and storms
  • Food crop failure
