The government is taking real and practical action with our climate solutions package. The most recent data shows that Australia's annual emissions have come down and are lower than when we came to office in 2013. The government is opposed to the Greens' policies to destroy jobs and the economy and to increase cost-of-living pressures. The government supports the Adani Carmichael mine project, which will create around 1,500 direct jobs and almost 7,000 supporting jobs, and which already has 800 people working across operations and projects in Queensland.
