Australia emits 1.2 per cent of the world’s greenhouse gases. So who must act to cut emissions?

Energy and Emissions Reductions Minister Angus Taylor has defended Australia's policies.

It’s true Australia is responsible for about 1.2 per cent of global emissions. It’s also true that we contribute a quarter of exports that make up the world’s coal trade and just became the biggest gas exporter.

So what effect does the action we take on climate change within Australia have on cutting emissions? What is our part in solving a problem that is, by its nature, global?
