My question is to the Prime Minister. Official data released today shows emissions have just gone up by two per cent under your government, but the independent Climate Targets Panel has determined that, for Australia to meet the Glasgow Climate Pact requirement to keep global warming below 1½ degrees, emissions must be cut by at least 74 per cent by 2030. Given Australia will be required to update our targets in Egypt next year, will you take a 75 per cent by 2030 target to the next election, or is the only way we are going to get science based climate targets to kick your terrible government out and put the Greens in balance of power?
