Scott Morrison: Australian leaders will attend the COP26 climate summit

Read Time:2 Minute, 1 Second


The country is the second largest coal exporter in the world. The Morrison government stated that it will continue to mine, export and use fossil fuels after 2030. This stance has moved Australia further and further away from global efforts to deal with the crisis.

Although Morrison is expected to announce Australia’s new position on climate change before COP26, he did not elaborate on any new goals at a press conference on Friday.

However, Morrison emphasized that this is “not just about achieving net zero emissions”, citing the commitments of more than 100 countries that have now or are considering achieving the goal of zero emissions by 2050.

“This is an important environmental goal,” Morrison said. “But the important thing is that Australia’s economy continues to grow and grow. The livelihood and life that Australians know, especially in rural and remote areas, can move forward with hope and confidence. This is the whole content of my plan.”

Last month, Morrison told the Western Australian newspaper that he has not yet made any final decision on whether to participate in climate negotiations.
He said that after other recent trips, he has been quarantined in the hotel for several weeks and needs to focus on reopening the country after extending the lockdown to curb the spread of Covid-19.

More than 100 world leaders, including US President Joe Biden, have confirmed their attendance at COP26, which will begin on October 31. G20 leaders including Australia will hold a meeting in Rome before the meeting.

Australia is one of the few countries that did not raise its greenhouse gas emission reduction targets when it registered the official update of its climate plan with the United Nations last year. It released the latest news on December 31, and did not make much fanfare to maintain its goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 26-28% by 2030 from 2005 levels.

The Australian Climate Commission, which is independent of the government, recommends that the country reduce emissions by 75% by 2030 compared to 2005 levels to help keep global warming within 1.5 degrees Celsius.

In 2015, more than 190 countries signed the Paris Agreement, which promised to keep global warming within 2 degrees (but preferably 1.5 degrees) higher than the pre-industrial level in order to avoid the catastrophic effects of the climate crisis Influence.
