Australia’s climate failures are costing its economy – and Scott Morrison’s government is being blamed | Greg Jericho | The Guardian

Scott Morrison

LNP has dragged the chain for a decade and despite their lack of progressive action the nation has done better than on should expect in some areas.

failure is blamed on the Morrison government. The report argues “a coherent and coordinated national strategy that defines clear goals and corresponding policy settings” for achieving net zero emission by at least 2050 “is needed”. Failure to do so since the end of the carbon price has meant Australia has missed out on “significant economic benefits” that “can come from a quicker pace of emission reductions”. That again remains toxic to the Morrison government – as the prime minister lacks the political will or power to challenge the climate change deniers in his government. And so the Morrison government will find much to like in this survey about what the OECD reports of 2020, but much to ignore about what it recommends for the future.
