It is also changing the climate in Australia.
The new era is now, and there is no denying it.
Climate change has the potential to disrupt our lives, change our livelihoods and change our society.
The Australian Government has made it clear that Australia is ready to be part of the solution.
But the impacts of climate change will not just be felt by our environment and economy, but also our people and communities.
It is time for the Australian Government to move away from the old climate change approach, and to embrace a new one that will address the needs of the Australian people and the planet.
Climate changes are not inevitable and they cannot be predicted.
We are all in this together, and that is what makes Australia exceptional.
Australia will need to act.
We can do it together.
We have a strong environmental record, and we know that our investments in the future will have the greatest impact on the environment.
We know that the carbon price is a tool to help governments and business to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and address climate change.
But our greatest contribution to the global community is the Australian way of life.
We live on the frontline of climate, and the consequences of climate disruption are serious.
Our future depends on it.

Climate is the driver of global poverty.
But climate change also has the power to change our world for the better.
We must act now to make sure we have the right tools to deliver the best possible outcome.
Australia is committed to climate action, and is working to implement the new carbon price and the Clean Energy Finance Corporation to make investments that are cost effective and can deliver meaningful climate change benefits.
But there are many ways we can move forward.
We are already seeing the impact of climate and climate change impacts, but there is a long way to go.
Climate change is real and it is happening right now.
We need to tackle it, and make the necessary investments to make our economy more resilient.
