Not only does the Morrison Government’s own data say carbon pollution is skyrocketing - new data from Ndevr Environmental confirms that under the Liberals Australia’s carbon emissions are again the highest on record.
Describing the disastrous state the Liberals have allowed Matt Drum, managing director of Ndevr said, “It’s looking grim. We need policy levers and we need them quickly.”
Yet speaking at the international climate conference in Poland, Environment Minister Melissa Price said, “We have policies to align strong economic growth with emissions reduction.”
Australians are sick of the blatant lies that come from the Liberals when it comes to taking action to start to bring down pollution and grapple with the climate emergency.
Just this week the out of touch Liberals announced their plan to spend billions of taxpayers’ dollars on new, expensive, coal-fired power stations that are fundamentally inconsistent with our climate change obligations.
Taking action on climate change will be a priority for a Shorten Labor Government. It is our promise, if elected, to future generations.
