PM rebuffs 2030 climate target pressure after belatedly agreeing to net zero by 2050.
Scott Morrison will use COP26 climate talks to rebuff international demands for Australia to formally strengthen its 2030 emissions target after belatedly agreeing to net zero by 2050.
While new projections show Australia cutting emissions by up to 35 per cent on 2005 levels by the end of the decade, it won't be formalised as a new target.
Australia's 2050 net-zero emissions target comes five days out from COP26 climate talks in Glasgow, where mid-term commitments will be a strong focus.
"There'll be a lot of words in Glasgow, but I'll be able to point to the actions of Australia and achievements of Australia," the prime minister said.
"If that was a 'comprehensive climate plan' then I've completely misunderstood what comprehensive means for my entire life," shared one Twitter user. https://t.co/XDBewnZT3k— Mamamia (@Mamamia) October 26, 2021
