Path to net zero by 2050 will ‘end in tears’: Canavan

Nationals Senator Matt Canavan says he believes the path towards net zero by 2050 will “end in tears” with the kind of skyrocketing power prices which are being experienced in Europe.

“This country’s about to go through the school of hard knocks, starting when the Liddell Power Station starts shutting down within a year’s time,” he told Sky News host Paul Murray.

“That is why I am sticking to my guns for common sense on this issue.

“We will need to pick up the pieces unfortunately in the years to come and I hope I’m there just to fight the good fight to do that.”
