Greta Thunberg & Joe Biden’s climate promises

Michael McLaren

Nick Cater, Executive Director of the Menzies Research Centre/Columnist with the Australian & Author of ‘The Lucky Culture’, joins Michael to discuss his recent article that looks into the fantastical nature of Joe Biden’s climate promises.

 

Mr Cater writes, ‘Joe Biden called an international summit last week to parade his administration’s virtue on climate change.’

 

‘He pledged to cut 2005-level greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2030, a goal twice as ambitious as that set by the Obama administration. It was left to Greta Thunberg to expose the emptiness of the promise.’

 

‘The ramped-up targets were “reliant on future, fantasy-scaled, currently barely existing negative emissions technologies”, she said.’

 

‘On this point at least, Thunberg and Scott Morrison are on the same page. The Prime Minister is reluctant to commit his country to net-zero emissions by 2050 without the technology to get us there.’

 

‘As Thunberg said, “we can fool others and even ourselves, we cannot fool nature and physics”.’
