Government’s climate bill passes through the lower house

The Albanese government’s climate bill enshrining Labor’s 43 per cent by 2030 emissions reduction target into law has passed through the lower house.

Greens Senator Barbara Pocock says the bill is a first step, but we need to pay attention to the things that can undermine its achievements.

“Things like more coal and gas opening up in our country which really would have a very detrimental effect on this target.”
