Ecomodernists argue that in order to de-carbonise we need a fundamentally new set of technologies to power our economy and mitigate our impact upon the climate.

    Coping costs. Societies may find ways to prepare for and cope with some climate impacts—provided that we do not let our carbon emissions continue unabated. However, even a partial accounting of these measures suggests that coping is likely to be more costly steps to reduce carbon emissions thereby reducing associated climate impacts.   As an knowledge based economy, Australian firms designing and producing specialized and high-tech products are getting most benefited in the manufacturing sector with globalization. For example, Australia has the largest operations of Boeing outside of the US and it is growing significantly both with R&D and sales (Kelly, ).
