My question is to the Leader of the Government in the Senate, representing the Prime Minister. In a few hours, the premier global body on climate science, the IPCC, will warn us that, unless there are immediate, rapid and large-scale reductions in pollution from coal, oil and gas, limiting warming to even two degrees will be beyond reach and that we will reach dangerous climate tipping points this decade. Will the Morrison government accept the findings of the IPCC and change Australia's disastrous climate policy settings?
