Australia was just singled out as a climate "holdout" by UN secretary General @antonioguterres . It's rare to see him single a country out like this. What does he mean? 🧵⬇️
👏 Many G20 developed economies have announced meaningful #emissionsreduction targets for 2030.
👎 Not Australia. Scott Morrison still took Tony Abbott's 26-28% emissions target to COP26. This targets is 6 years old.
🥵The COP26 conference was focussed on improved 2030 targets and a rapid phaseout of coal (by 2030). Australia refused, making us a loner among developed countries & a "holdout" on climate.

As Josh Lynham in the #WestWing once exclaimed "We've got the big MO!"

That's right the momentum on #climate action & the transition to #renewables is now becoming too hard to ignore. And this week has been HUGE.

Let's start domestically: On Mon the NSW Government @Matt_KeanMP kicked off the week with a 12GW #renewables & 2GW storage by 2030 announcement, backed by a policy mechanism & transmission. The most significant RE policy since @MrKRudd expanded the RET…
Then on Tuesday the Tasmanian Parliament passed their 200% #renewables target through the lower house of their parliament. This is truly world-leading. No jurisdiction in the world that I can find has set a 200% #renewables target.

A few thoughts on the @JoeBiden Victory:
Biden has announced to rejoin the Paris Climate Convention as soon as possible. To do so, USA must present a new ambitious climate contribution for the year 2030, NDC . It will not be too ambitious but everything is better than now (1/7)
The chances to reach 1.5 degree target are increasing. EU, China, Japan others, committed to become climate-neutral in a few decades with strong emission cuts. This is why now in the Corona crisis - unlike in the past - economic aid is increasingly linked to climate aspects (2/7)
If US climate "Green Deal" becomes reality, EU will no longer be a pioneer. The EU need to raise climate targets, expand renewable energies more quickly and immediately abolish any climate-damaging subsidies. The EU should initiate a joint #GreenNewDeal Deal with the USA. (3/7)

.@JasonFalinskiMP & @TimWilsonMP scrambling: either they don’t know how to read a legislation or they are just misleading? Fact: Commission to make recommendations to Govt and then report to Aus public on how Govt plan is delivering. Is the issue being held to account? #auspol
Pressure coming their way: see breakdown of support per electorate and State at I am sure all these people will remember at the next election. Share widely to anyone you know in Mackellar and Melbourne, party politics is putting Aus at risk. #ClimateActNow
Everyone in Mackellar that is worried about Climate Change, @DaveSharma is running the same line! The party machine is scrambling. Business, Industry, State and Territory govts - everyone knows we need to plan for Net Zero by 2050. #auspol
