DAVID SPEERS presents a Q+A Climate Special tonight on ABC

- ADVERTISEMENT -

This week on Q+A – The hotly-disputed pathway to net zero.

As world leaders prepare to gather in Glasgow, can last-minute talks between the Liberal and National parties deliver a deal that will put Australia on track to reach net zero emissions by 2050?

PM Scott Morrison says his target of net zero will deliver a benefit to jobs and the regions. But Labor wants any new targets to be legislated, a scenario which could see Coalition MPs pitted against each other on the floor of the Parliament.

And as the political squabbling continues, coal mining communities in places like the Hunter Valley and Central Queensland’s Bowen Basin say their voices are being lost in the debate.

Meanwhile after months of severe restrictions, lockdown is ending for Melbourne and regional Victoria on Thursday night. In NSW, more freedoms are on offer after the population hit its 80 per cent double-vaccination target earlier than expected. And Queensland Premier Annastacia Palasczuk has announced a phased reopening next month to those who are fully vaccinated.
