Will 2015 be the year of the climate change barnacle?

Despite the Abbott axe of 2014, the hottest year on record, solar demand that refuses to die, a strong overseas renewable energy industry and the pressure of Paris give cause for optimism in 2015.

Many of those concerned about climate change and clean energy are likely to be feeling pessimistic heading into 2015. Last year was certainly one of disappointment on the Australian government policy front. The Abbott Government seemed determined to take an axe to anything associated with reducing carbon pollution, and this even extended to programs aimed at cleaning up coal.

However, there are a range of reasons to suggest that heading into 2015 there are good reasons to be optimistic that the Abbott Government’s disdain for green technology can be overcome.
