Climate Change


Mr BUTLER (Hindmarsh) (14:23): My question is to the Minister Energy and Emissions Reduction. Does the minister agree with the member for Longman that children should be taught that climate change is not real?


Mr TAYLOR (HumeMinister for Energy and Emissions Reduction) (14:24): We heard from the member for Longman a fabulous first speech this week. Climate change is real, and we are taking practical action to deliver emissions reduction. We know we are on track to meet our 2030 targets. The Climate Solutions Package is doing exactly that for us, with $3.5 billion committed to ensure that we will achieve our 2030 targets, exactly as we achieved our 2012 Kyoto targets and will achieve our 2020 Kyoto targets as well. We will do that whilst maintaining a strong economy, in contrast to those opposite.
