Energy Minister Admits Carbon Emissions rose in 2017

Energy minister Josh Frydenberg recently admitted to the media that official data revealed how carbon emissions have actually risen by 0.7% last year, for the fourth year in a row.

This admission was during a report on how the government plans to tackle carbon emissions by 2020, which is projected to be slightly above current levels due to expansion in the liquefied gas sector, but partially offset by falling emissions in the electricity sector.

Joining The Daily’s James Hill to discuss what the future of carbon emissions will look like is Amanda Mackenzie, the chief executive of the Climate Council.
