Climate Targets:Wong Won't Say

Climate Change Minister Penny Wong won't say if she'll reveal the Federal Government's 2020 target for greenhouse gas emission reduction before she goes to international climate change talks in Poznan in Poland in December.

Ducking the question from Greens Leader Senator Bob Brown in the Senate today, Senator Wong said she will make the announcement on targets in December. But she refused to say if she would let Australians know the targets before she goes to Poznan, or if she would leave it to the rarefied air of the pre-Christmas week to make the information known.
