20210202 Senator Hollie Hughes – Senate – Aust renewable energy

Our first day in the Senate and we already have the other parties peddling ignorance and misinformation; they’re always happy to criticise but never able to come up with a plan. It was my joy to set them straight on the Morrison Government’s already remarkable achievements, and our real plans and practical action to further lower emissions and expand renewable Australian energy.

Having smashed our Kyoto-era targets by more than 459 million tonnes, the Morrison Government’s continuing plan is driven not by increasing taxes, but by technology … new and innovative technology I have seen firsthand with my friends in the wonderful Hunter region, a region that is set to be the new economic powerhouse of Australian energy supply and exports.

Real plans, realisable goals, creating more Australian jobs, securing Australia’s energy supply, and creating new Australian industries. What other government has done more?
