Earlier today at the Lowy Institute, Opposition Leader Bill Shorten announced an emissions reduction target of 45% by 2030 on 2005 levels (in comparison, the Coalition's target is a 26-28% reduction by 2030). 

After Shorten's address, I spoke with John Connor, CEO of The Climate Institute, about the impact of that target on Australia's economy, how it ranks us internationally, and whether climate change will be a major issue at the next Australian election.
