Albanese rejects Greens’ plea to end new gas and coal projects
Prime Minister Anthony Albanese refuses to ban new gas and coal projects in an interview with Sarah Ferguson for ABC.
Albanese states that a moratorium would have a ‘devastating impact’ on Australia’s economy. However, the CSIRO’s decadal megatrend report predicts that climate change and its consequent natural disaster will cost Australia $39.3 billion annually by 2050.
