This is clearly not in the spirit of the Paris Agreement. And above all, the history of Kyoto shows that Australia does not deserve to win the credits at all. The energy minister said on Tuesday that signatories to the Paris agreement, including Australia, had agreed to reach net zero “in the second half of the century.” However, to achieve Paris` central goal of keeping global temperature rising well above 2°C above its pre-industrial level this century and working to further limit temperature rise to 1.5°C – a commitment made by Australia in 2015 – signatories must reach net zero by 2050. Angus Taylor says Australia`s policy is not to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050, when it signed the Paris Agreement because the Morrison government will not adopt a mid-century target in advance of a plan to achieve it. The statement outlines a number of key claims, the technologies of which are expected to lead Australia to exceed its 2030 climate target under the Paris Agreement, support more than 130,000 jobs and “avoid” 250 million tonnes of emissions per year by 2040, or nearly 50% of Australia`s current annual emissions. No evidence has been published to support them. But the Australian government`s new forecast, to be released on Saturday, shows a downward revision to domestic emissions by 2030, which shows for the first time that Australia`s cumulative emissions will be 16 million tonnes below the paris agreement target. Federal Energy and Emissions Reduction Minister Angus Taylor has put forward new forecasts showing that Australia is on track to meet its emissions reduction targets under the Paris Climate Agreement for the first time, provided it has so-called “transmission credits”. It does not attempt to define a path to net-zero emissions, let alone net zero by 2050, the underlying goal of the Paris Agreement, supported by scientific consensus, business leaders, farmers, trade unions and investors and more than 100 countries. A new review of the government`s climate policy, led by Grant King, former chairman of the Business Council of Australia, finds that “Australia, like other signatories to the Paris Agreement, has agreed to gradually adopt more ambitious targets after 2030 and has endorsed the agreement`s overall long-term objectives of limiting global temperature increase to well below 2°C – and if possible below 1.5°C, achieving net-zero emissions as quickly as possible in the second half of the year. of the century”. If you want this transfer, it`s just fraud.
In a way, Australia was ready to destroy the whole system, because that is the way to destroy the entire Paris Agreement. According to the new forecasts, Australia will need The Kyoto transfer credits to achieve about half of the reductions needed under the Paris Agreement, which requires Australia to reduce its emissions by 26-28% by 2030 compared to their 2005 level. “Seasonal emission reductions at the national level are therefore essentially linked to the climate catastrophe of our rural industries. It should also commit to incentivizing industry to adopt these new technologies as soon as they become available either through carbon pricing or regulation. Asked whether other nations were wrong to commit to setting climate change targets, Taylor said each country was in a different situation. The energy minister says the coalition`s approach is “not to have a goal without a plan” to achieve both last year`s short-term emission reductions or others, as well as longer-term emission reductions since 2005. come from the impact on the rural sector in Australia….
