Zali Steggall asks govt when it will properly mitigate climate risk with a strong 2035 target

4 July 2024

 

Climate risk is worsening the cost of living with dire consequences to communities on insurance and housing. They will be essentially unmortgageable if they are uninsurable. Methane heats up the atmosphere by some 80 times more than C02. The government has now missed its statutory deadline to respond to the Climate Change Authority's recommendation to fix methane reporting. When will the government properly mitigate climate risk with methane reporting and a strong 2035 target?
