Australia passing climate law over fossil fuel exports

Image of post in post detailed view

Australia is ready to reduce its carbon emissions and address the impact of major industrial sites!
The Labor government and the Greens party worked out a deal that required the total emissions from major industrial facilities to come down, not just be offset.
Many of the country's major polluting facilities will be required to cut emissions intensity at least by 5% a year, with absolute cuts or by buying carbon offsets.
As the world's 3rd largest fossil fuel exporter Australia is still running export projects but as per the new law still must offset all CO2 emissions. While it is encouraging but of course not enough. Also, the deal does not prevent further industry expansion, and the Greens had to compromise on their initial demand to ban new coal and gas upcoming developments. The legislation is a step in the right direction, but there is still much work to be done to reductions in carbon emissions in Australia.
