The OTHER budget

featuring Ebony Bennett, Polly Hemming and Richie Merzian

Not the federal budget, the carbon budget. Prime Minister Scott Morrison keeps telling world leaders Australia will ‘meet and beat’ its Paris target and that Australia is ‘leading the world’ on emissions reduction, but if you dig into the carbon accounts the numbers tell a different story. Join Richie Merzian and Polly Hemming from the Australia Institute’s climate & energy program as they unpack the real story of Australia emissions.
