Ben Fordham explains the ongoing debate around net zero by 2050 and climate change
Ben Fordham is calling for the Prime Minister to sell the electorate net zero Emissions by 2050.
The Nationals are expected to deliver feedback on a net zero policy this week which would determine whether they support the target.
It’s hoped a deal will be struck ahead of the Prime Minister’s appearance at the Glasgow climate summit.
Ben says while he supports Australia doing its bit, taxpayers are entitled to know the cost of any such plan.
Ben pointed to the fact China emits more in 16 days than Australia does in a year but is refusing to sign up to the international UN plan.
Coal is worth up to $50 billion to Australia every year and 50,000 jobs.
Ben says Scott Morrison hasn’t fronted up to the public to explain the major policy change.
“Part of the issue is, he hasn’t sold it,” Ben said.
“He’s spent more than a decade telling everyone the opposite.
“If you’re going to undertake a major shift like that you’ve got to take people with you.
“You can’t have editors of newspapers doing your job for you Prime Minister, you’ve got to do the job yourself.”
