Malcolm Turnbull removes all climate change targets from energy policy in fresh bid to save leadershipND
David Crowe, The Sydney Morning Herald, Monday August 20 2018
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has staged another dramatic retreat on energy policy in the face of a dire threat to his leadership, removing climate change targets from the National Energy Guarantee in his second policy reset in four days. The revised scheme, aimed at cutting down a challenge from Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton, will go ahead without federal legislation to stipulate a 26 percent cut to greenhouse gas emissions. The changes do not mean Australia is walking away from the Paris agreement, but postpone any attempt to legislate the 26 percent target alongside the NEG, in the belief the cuts can be delivered by 2030 without the need for tougher rules. "In politics you have to focus on what you can deliver," Mr Turnbull said.
