Minister, you are essentially saying our gas is being substituted for coal. Can you tell me which countries are now burning gas instead of coal, how much each country substituted and how many tonnes of emissions have been reduced? Or is it the case that, in fact, these countries are now burning gas as well as coal, and you're just spouting fossil fuel industry talking points?
