A sugar hit of COVID-affected transport, growing renewables and suspicious revisions – all the hidden bits in Australia’s new emissions data.
The NSW renewable energy plans could massively reduce emissions, but a federally-approved gas mine could cancel out at least half of that.
The UK is frequently cited as an example of why gas is “needed” in a clean energy transition, but the government’s own forecasts shows gas will be in rapid decline.
Most energy produced when fossil fuels burned is wasted. The transition to electricity and renewables will change this.
