A call for ideas on the kind of a low-emission future we want, and actions we can take to make it happen

This is an open letter by nine authors participating in Motu's Low-Emission Future Dialogue. It originally appeared on, here, and has been cross-posted with permission.

Dealing with climate change is difficult, there is no denying that.

Thankfully as a nation we have moved past denying climate change itself. Now we are debating the best way to deal with it. That much is progress.

The contributors to this article are part of a group of people that meets regularly to discuss climate change and how we might deal with it as businesses, academics, non-government organisations and individuals.

We don’t always agree on what needs to be done, but we do agree that climate change is a huge issue that will shape the future of our nation.
