NT fracking emissions would dwarf renewables target

by Mark Ogge

New analysis from the Australia institute has found that emissions from NT Fracking identified by the Fracking Inquiry would be equivalent to 100 times more than the emissions savings under the Northern Territory Government’s Roadmap to Renewables: 50% by 2030 policy. 

Key findings include that NT fracking could result in emissions that:

  • Increase Australia’s total greenhouse gas emissions by over 5%.
  • Are equivalent to six times the Northern Territory’s total 2016 emissions.
  • Are equivalent to 100 times more than the emissions savings under the Northern Territory Government’s Roadmap to Renewables: 50% by 2030 policy.
