Weatherill lobbies victoria on environmental flows, energy and water


Australia’s environment minister is appealing to states to support his vision for a stronger carbon tax for coal.

Environment minister Greg Hunt will argue at the New South Wales Science in Public Policy conference that the climate impacts of emissions from a more polluting nation should be taken into account when making decisions about development.

“I am arguing to the states, particularly to the most vulnerable parts of our state, to take up the task of making our emissions rules a little bit stricter,” he said.

The Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) estimates carbon taxes will reduce emissions by a further 4 per cent of the electricity grid’s total emissions.

But Mr Hunt will say he will also urge sta우리카지노tes to put additional revenue into climate funds to help mitigate future climate change risks.
“A $100 billion climate fund is not enough,” he said.

“We’re talking about the equivalent of every Australian paying $60 dollars in a single year.”
