It is not trying to find a way to achieve zero net 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. The energy minister said on Tuesday that the signatories to the Paris agreement, including Australia, had agreed to reach zero “in the second half of the century.” But scientists say that to achieve the central paris goal of keeping global temperature rise well below 2C above pre-industrial levels this century, and continuing efforts to further limit the temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius – a commitment Australia made in 2015 – signatories must move to zero by 2050. If you want this transmission, it`s just fraud. Australia was prepared, in a way, to destroy the whole system, because it is the way to destroy the entire Paris agreement. Angus Taylor says it is not Australia`s policy to achieve net zero emissions by 2050, despite the signing of the Paris Agreement, because the Morrison government will not adopt a mid-century target for a plan to achieve that goal. Under the new projections, Australia will need Kyoto deferral credits to reach about half of the reductions required under the Paris Agreement, which requires Australia to reduce its emissions by 26-28% by 2030. Federal Energy and Emissions Reduction Minister Angus Taylor has highlighted new forecasts that show Australia is on track to meet its emissions reduction targets under the Paris climate agreement for the first time, provided it takes into account so-called “transfer credits.” A new review of the government`s climate policy, led by former Business Council of Australia President Grant King, notes that “Australia, like other signatories to the Paris Agreement, has agreed to adopt more ambitious targets beyond 2030 and has endorsed the overall long-term goals of the agreement, namely to limit the increase in global temperature to a level well below 2 degrees Celsius – and , if possible, at less than 1.5 degrees Celsius – reaching zero net emissions as quickly as possible in the second half of the century.” However, the Australian government`s new forecasts, to be released on Saturday, show a downward revision of national emissions by 2030 that shows, for the first time, that Australia`s cumulative emissions will be 16 million tonnes below the Paris Agreement target. The statement makes a series of key claims, including that technology should enable Australia to exceed its 2030 climate target under the Paris Agreement, help support more than 130,000 jobs and “avoid 250 million tonnes of emissions per year – or nearly 50% of Australia`s current annual emissions – by 2040.
