PM quizzed on economic cost of three degree warming

Scott Morrison has evaded questioning from Independent MP Zali Steggall on whether the government has costed the economic impact of a three degrees warmer world.

The Warringah MP quizzed the prime minister on if they had modelled the impact on costal and regional communities, and if so, they would release it.

Mr Morrison declared his government was taking action on climate change and said her question would be better for Labor.

“Those opposite (Labor), Mr Speaker, do not have a 2030 view about emissions reductions that they can actually share with the Australian people. Not one,” he said.

“What we are going to do is recognising to take the action on climate change necessary is to get emissions down by the smart process of having a technology plan that sees us reduce emissions into the future.

“We’ve got a plan focused on technology. They’ve got a target, and all that means is higher taxes.”
