From the AFR:
Australia is on track to miss its 2030 carbon pollution reduction target, with official data released ahead of the Christmas break showing emissions are still rising.
The federal government on Thursday made public the official quarterly emissions data for the year to June showing an increase of 0.8 per cent on the previous year.
It also released projections showing emissions in 2030 will be just 0.5 per cent lower than 2005 levels, rather than the government’s own targets of 26-28 per cent lower.
Just do nothing (except inflate population, house prices and carbon output).
