Morrison needs to ‘show leadership’ on net zero commitment

Sky News host Nicholas Reece says Prime Minister Scott Morrison needs to “show leadership” on a commitment to net-zero emissions, as the coalition faces division over the proposed target.

“He needs to step up for Australia, he needs to commit Australia to net-zero emissions by 2050,” Mr Reece said.

“It’s not actually that big a deal, but it’s an important sign that the rest of the world and Australia, and the people that invest in Australia can start planning for.

“And the Prime Minister can hold his head up high and attend the COP26 in Glasgow and not try and shirk his responsibility or be such an embarrassment.”
