Public Donations Save the Australian Climate Commission

On September 23, the former head of Australia’s Climate Commission announced that the axed organization would rise again as the Climate Council, a non-profit body funded by public donations. As of October 15th, the Council had raised $1 million Australian to continue its mission “to provide authoritative, expert advice to the Australian public on climate change”.
