The No 1 issue for Australians during this 2019 election campaign is climate change.
Polling by foreign policy thinktank Lowy found the majority of Australians believe global warming is a critical threat.
 From a list of 12 threats to Australia’s national interests, more than 60% of adults rank climate change as No 1. This is up 18 points since their survey in 2014.
Reporting on climate change is a priority for the Guardian globally. We give these stories the prominence they deserve, stories which often go unreported by others in the mainstream media. At this critical time for our planet, we are determined to inform readers about threats, consequences and solutions based on scientific facts, not political prejudice or business interests.
During this election campaign, we have covered the climate emergency from every angle. From the shocking UN report on the accelerating decline of the Earth’s natural life-support systems released last week and what Australia needs to do about it, through to the short-sightedness of some of the political debate and also why there is still hope for our species, Guardian Australia has reported on it. There is simply no bigger issue.
