Last quote by Josh Frydenberg

Climate change is real. We take our advice from the scientific experts. We believe we need to reduce our emissions. That is why Tony Abbott signed up to the Paris agreement. Now the Turnbull government is continuing the work of Coalition governments to reduce carbon emissions, but to do so in a way that doesn't compromise the affordability and the reliability of our system.feedback

Australia is taking strong action to address the global threat of climate change having ratified the Paris Agreement which will see Australia reduce its emissions by 26 to 28 percent on 2005.feedback

Jun 13 2017

There was an overwhelming feeling among those in the party room tonight that business as usual is not an option. Many of my colleagues spoke of their personal experiences dealing with manufacturers, cafe owners, heavy industry, including the aluminium sector dealing with higher prices.feedback

Jun 13 2017 - Carbon

Dr Finkel has made it very clear – he's not putting in place any prohibition on coal or other forms of generation capacity, what he's doing is placing incentives for lower emission generation. It's not a price on carbon, it's not a tax on coal.feedback

Jun 13 2017 - Carbon

Dr Finkel has made it very clear he is not putting in place any prohibitions on coal or any form of generation capacity. He is putting in place incentives for lower emission generation. It is not a price on carbon or a tax on coal. Indeed, it has similarities to what John Howard put forward back in 2007.feedback

Jun 12 2017 - Clean energy

And I think the clean energy target does that.feedback

Jun 10 2017

The market will determine it and that's the key point. We don't want to punish the existing coal generators because we want them to remain an important part of the energy mix going forward.feedback

Jun 10 2017

I'm talking to all my colleagues and taking them through the challenges we face, taking them through the Finkel recommendations and then, as a government, with the prime minister's strong input, we will land a position. Business as usual is not an option for us because we are dealing with a less stable, higher-priced system.feedback

Jun 05 2017

I think everyone recognises that if you do nothing, power prices do go up. We do need a technology-neutral approach and we do need to ensure that the transition to a lower-emissions future is stable and ensures that power prices are affordable.feedback

Jun 01 2017 - Trump Presidency

As our prime minister has made very clear, when we sign up to international agreements … we will follow through.feedback

Jun 01 2017

But here in Australia, we're at the lowest emissions intensity on a GDP and per capita basis in 27 years. So Australia is transforming and we are supporting that transition in a way that ensures energy affordability and energy security.feedback

Jun 01 2017

It would push out, faster than the system can cope, brown and black coal generators and right now, after we saw the blackout in South Australia, which was a disaster for the people and the businesses of that state, we can't afford to compromise energy security and energy affordability.feedback

Jun 01 2017

We reiterate our full commitment to the Paris Accord. We believe that the targets we agreed to, the 26% to 28% reduction in emissions by 2030 on 2005 levels are reasonable, are achievable. I do believe that it is still a very meaningful agreement. You have more than 190 countries that signed on, and in record time, 146 countries have ratified. So even without the US, around 70% of the world's emissions are covered by that agreement.feedback

Jun 01 2017

That's why it's a dilemma that we face.feedback

Jun 01 2017

It's got its lowest emissions intensity in more than 20 years and one of the reasons for that is the shale gas revolution which has seen gas overtake coal as a major energy source.feedback

May 30 2017 - Carbon

This amendment that we're introducing only applies to carbon capture and storage.feedback

May 19 2017 - Biodiversity

It's a very complicated step, and in fact it's indeed a two-step process to remove the great white sharks from the [Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation] Act, and it will take some time and it would need to be based on scientific evidence. Any change to the listing of great white sharks would need to be based on scientific evidence. It would not be appropriate to preempt the process which involves the CSIRO studying numbers and any recommendations by the independent scientific committee.feedback

Apr 25 2017 - Commonwealth

The commonwealth would welcome any proposal to protect human life first and foremost.feedback

Apr 11 2017 - Great Barrier Reef

These new projects complement existing efforts and demonstrate how we can make private investment work effectively alongside public funding to maximise results for the reef from each dollar invested. Collaborative partnerships like the ones announced today are critical to address the threats and pressures faced by the reef.feedback

It is already apparent that Labor doesn't know what its policy is called, whether it will be legislated, how much it costs or what impact it will have on power prices and energy security.feedback

Mar 23 2017

The government thanks both Danny Price and John Quiggin for their service and the government will continue to engage constructively with the authority.feedback

Mar 16 2017

Mar 12 2017

The issue in Australia has always been that it would be a deterrent to further investment if you were going to restrict the gas merely for domestic supply as opposed [to] for international export. I think that is quite a creative way forward because it doesn't introduce the possibility of sovereign risk because it doesn't effect existing investments but it does encourage further investments to supply the domestic market.feedback
