Gillard can still win the carbon tax debate

A major report released by The Climate Institute today suggests Australians can still be convinced on the carbon tax and there is overwhelming community support for renewable energy. But with climate change concern waning, there's much work to do on educating the public.

Since 2007, The Climate Institute has conducted comprehensive on ground research into Australian attitudes to climate change and related policies. We have published a number of Climate of the Nation reports and aim to publish annual mid-year reports to track evolving attitudes and actions.

Attitudes will develop against a backdrop of volatile climate politics, economic uncertainties, carbon pricing realities, low-carbon technological advances, global developments and shifting perceptions of prosperity and quality of life.
