Australia does not have plans in place to meet 2030 climate goal, assessment finds

Australia is behind other industrialised nations in having policies in place that can meet its promised 2030 target to cut greenhouse gases, a new assessment of its international climate change pledge has found.
The analysis by the global project, Climate Action Tracker, says with only the Abbott government’s direct action scheme and the renewable energy target installed at the national level, Australia is on track to fall short of its 2030 pledge and will in fact see emissions rise by the end of the next decade.
