Australia and Fossil Fuels

 Angus Taylor, Australia's emissions reduction minister has declared he will use the COP26 climate summit to promote Australia as a good place to invest in fossil fuel projects.

The emissions reduction minister said on Thursday that Australia was a “safe and reliable destination to invest in gas, hydrogen and new energy technologies”.

It followed his announcement that the Morrison government had rejected a call to join a US and European-led pledge to cut emissions of methane – a potent greenhouse gas released during gas and coal extraction and by livestock – by 30% by 2030.
