PM Morrison gives world and seven future generations the middle finger as Australian CO2 emissions soar

Morrison gives climate the middle finger as Australian emissions soar over Paris | RenewEconomy

Prime Minister Scott Morrison and his Coalition cabinet like to tell us that Australia will meet its Paris climate targets “at a canter”. But that’s not what the data tells us. New studies show Australia is on track to miss its Paris target by nearly a billion tonnes..

“Australia’s total national emissions excluding land use are projected to be 558 Mt CO2-e for FY2018,” the report says.

“This is the highest emission level on record (which began FY2002) and marks the third consecutive year of record levels of emissions. Australia’s emission trajectory continues to increase and it is expected that FY2019 will break the highest emissions record for a fourth consecutive year.”
