Sick and disturbing that emissions continue to rise: Bandt
In response to reports that Australia’s emissions over the past year are rising, with projections that our transport emissions could be the highest on record, Greens climate change and energy spokesperson Adam Bandt MP today expressed his fury at the government’s climate denialism.
“It’s hard to believe that in 2017, when every country not ruled by a megalomaniac is trying to reduce their emissions, Australia’s emissions continue to rise,” said Mr Bandt.
“This is sick and disturbing. To this government, the Paris agreement isn’t worth the paper it is written on.
“This government of coal-huggers is sentencing Australia to intense bushfires, worse heatwaves and more deaths.”
