Motion: Climate Action

I move:

That the Senate—

(a) notes that:

(i) the New South Wales (NSW) Government has released a plan to transition to renewable energy, including through the creation of renewable energy zones, support for solar and wind power projects and the development of new transmission capacity,

(ii) the NSW Government has a goal of reaching net zero emissions by 2050, and

(iii) the Federal Government's current trajectory has Australia meeting net zero emissions by 2300; and

(b) calls on the Federal Government to commit to an urgent plan to invest in renewable energy and commit to clear and more ambitious emissions reduction targets for 2030, which global scientists have confirmed is the critical decade left in which we have to act.
