by leave—I move the motion as amended:

That the Senate—

agrees that:
scientific evidence supports a link between human activity and climate change, and
urgent action is required to reduce greenhouse gas emissions globally; and
notes that the Stern report suggests the costs to the economy and to the environment of inaction are significantly greater than the short-term cost of action.

Question agreed to.
