This motion bells the cat on yesterday's Labor-Greens motion in the other place. By declaring a climate emergency, Labor and the Greens have signalled their intent to completely shut down our coal, oil and gas sectors. This would destroy jobs, drive up cost-of-living pressures and decimate the economy. The Liberal-National government is taking real and meaningful action to reduce our emissions and meet our 2030 target while continuing to grow the economy.
