Labor’s 2030 climate target betters the Morrison government, but Australia must go much further, much faster

Albanese plays a political but straight ball. Why 43% and not 45% because Morrison put the Brakes on. for the past 3 years.

Go further, faster

Announcing the policy on Friday, Albanese said the planned emissions reduction was consistent with that of Canada, which has a comparable economy. If Labor wins government at next year’s election, Australia could “go to international climate conferences and not be in the naughty corner”, Albanese said. “I wanted to make sure we have a policy that doesn’t leave people behind, that supports industry, supports jobs and gets the balance right.” There’s no question that Labor’s target is inadequate. But it provides a solid framework for further action in the next decade. Any federal government that implements meaningful policy to reduce emissions will quickly realise it’s in Australia’s interests to go further, faster. Doing so will leave households better off, grow jobs in regional Australia, and ensure we play a role in the global effort to avert climate catastrophe.
