The Labor Party likes to pretend that nothing has been done. We have been working for 10 years to reduce Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions. Our actions over the last 10 years have reduced greenhouse gas emissions by 87 million tonnes. We have spent $2 billion on a whole range of programs to reduce Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions. We set up the world’s first greenhouse gas office to do just that. So our record on this is a proud one, a good one, and we have done it without damaging the Australian economy, which is what your policies would do.
