Once again the Liberals have repeated the lie that they will meet their inadequate Paris climate targets.
Energy Minster Angus Taylor is blatantly ignoring the fact the Government’s own data shows that carbon emissions are now at their highest level since 2011 and they will continue to rise all the way to 2030.
Australians are sick of the ignorant lies that come from the Liberals when it comes to taking action to start to bring down pollution and grapple with the climate emergency.
Scott Morrison and the Liberals have no plan to reduce emissions in the land, industrial, transport or other sectors of the economy.
Emissions are only coming down in the electricity sector because of Labor’s Renewable Energy Target but under Scott Morrison’s anti-renewable Liberals their only energy plan is to spend billions of taxpayers’ dollars on new coal-fired power stations that are fundamentally inconsistent with our climate change obligations.
