Switch to renewable energy, says activist

THERE is still a chance to save our homes, but the rest of the world needs to take ambitious action to switch from dirty fossil fuels to a renewable energy system.

350.org Pacific spokesman Fenton Lutunatabua said the latest inter-governmental panel on climate change report launched yesterday showed there was still a chance to save the Pacific.

"But only if Australia and the rest of the world take ambitious action to switch from dirty fossil fuels to a renewable energy system," Mr Lutunatabua said.

"Everything we have and are is at threat from climate change. Most terrifying is the threat of losing our islands to sea level rise."

The report highlighted the need for a drastic transition from carbon polluting fossil fuels to a clean renewable energy system if the world was to remain.
