I move:

At the end of the motion, add:

but the Senate:

  (a) rejects this Bill and the related Bills;

  (b) recognises that:

     (i) the world is on track for 4 degrees of warming; and

     (ii) warming of less than 1 degree is already intensifying extreme weather events in Australia and around the world with enormous costs to life and property;

  (c) calls on the government to:

     (i) protect the Australian people and environment from climate change by approving no new coal mines or extensions of existing mines, or new coal export terminals; and

     (ii) adopt a trajectory of 40-60% below 2000 levels by 2030 and net carbon zero by 2050 emissions reduction target in global negotiations for a 2015 treaty.
