Poll shows overwhelming support for withdrawal from Paris

July 27, 2018

An internet poll which closed today shows 81% of the more than 1,400 respondents support the Conservative Party's call for Australia to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement.

Conservatives' leader Cory Bernardi has called for the Turnbull government to step away from its Paris commitment to cut carbon emissions and for Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg to scrap the National Energy Guarantee's (NEG) emissions targets along with all energy subsidies.

The Australian newspaper reports, the Labor Party also doesn't support the NEG, however their opposition stems from the competing concern that the NEG's emissions targets too low.

Federal Labor's position increases pressure on ALP governments in Queensland and Victoria to reject the latest design of the NEG, which is set to be ­debated at a meeting of state and territory leaders next month.

Senator Bernardi has told radio station FIVEaa's Leon Byner if we pull out of the Paris agreement we will no longer be hamstrung by green theology, we can remove renewable subsidies and bring stability back to the energy market and make power prices affordable again.
