PM to stick with Paris targets

August 28, 2018

Prime Minister Scott Morrison is reportedly resisting calls to ditch the government's commitment to the Paris climate change targets because it could harm a free trade deal with Europe.

The news is no surprise to Conservative Party leader Cory Bernardi despite Mr Morrison being under internal pressure to abandon the emissions reduction targets after last week's controversial Liberal leadership turmoil.

The Conservative Party's position is clearly stated in our Energy policy - we will withdraw from the Paris Climate accord. You can add your voice to get out of the Paris pact here.

The Australian Financial Review reported on Tuesday the Coalition will maintain the Paris commitment, despite uncertainty over how it will reach the goal to cut emissions by 26 to 28 per cent on 2005 levels, by 2030.

Internal division over the coalition's National Energy Guarantee was one of the catalysts for the successful challenge to Malcolm Turnbull's leadership.

The former prime minister was dumped despite withdrawing the Paris targets from the policy in a failed effort to placate rebel MPs.

Senator Bernardi has told Sydney radio station 2GB the fact that the Morrison government is acting like Labor is just true to form.
