The latest Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF) auction proves Scott Morrison, Angus Taylor and the Liberals continue to fail on climate change policy.
The disastrous auction dedicated less than $1m to just three emissions reduction projects.
Combined, the three projects have only promised to cut emissions by 59,000 tonnes over a decade or just 0.06 per cent of the 100m-tonne cut Scott Morrison claimed his rebadged Abbott climate policy would deliver.
All Scott Morrison is doing with this policy is pouring $2 billion worth of taxpayers’ money down the drain and appeasing the hard-right of his party room by avoiding real action on climate.
As Malcolm Turnbull said, the ERF was never anything but a fiscally irresponsible fig leaf designed to cover a determination to do nothing.
The Liberals’ record on climate is:
This failed Abbott climate policy proves that protégé Angus Taylor can’t reduce emissions and won’t tackle climate change.
