Abstract

A recent Australian and New Zealand Journal of Public Health editorial argues that we live in a critical decade with regard to the ‘energy transition’ required to respond to climate change.1 Many who have followed the long debate about climate change, energy and other aspects of limits to growth2 feel growing disquiet.3 Predictions of the consequences of approaching limits – such as rising energy prices – have long been made, based on theory and models. Now, these forecasts are supported by increasing observational evidence.4 Greenhouse gas concentrations continue to rise. While the rate of increase in land surface temperatures may have temporarily slowed, warming of the Earth system, including the ocean, has not
