Crikey, with the support of Climate Spectator, is presenting a series that attempts to pin down the top 10 people driving Australia’s efforts to create a low-carbon economy. You can read numbers 10 to 6 in the “carbon cutters” list here. Climate Spectator, in conjunction with Crikey, will be counting down from number 5 over the coming week, with CEFC boss Oliver Yates today coming in at #4. The profile of climate lawyer Martijn Wilder (#5 on the list) can be found here.
Banking chief Oliver Yates seems horrified to be asked if he is a “greenie”.
He asks Crikey what is meant by that. An environmentalist, I say; someone who wants to protect the environment.
