'By world standards Australia does pretty well in terms of our recycling and recovery rates” but there are some 'very big challenges across the board in our recycling and waste management industries” says Liberal MP Trevor Evans.

"By world standards Australia does pretty well in terms of our recycling and recovery rates” but there are some "very big challenges across the board in our recycling and waste management industries” says Liberal MP Trevor Evans. The government issued a pledge to ramp up recycling, in part because of China import bans set to start in the middle of this year, however a number of recycling plants have shut down as a result of the ban.

Mr Evans told Sky News “there is an opportunity here which is to bring a level of national leadership and coordination of the states and other players in this space to try to make sure industry locally is more sustainable and strong”. “We want people to have more confidence in the fact that when they do put something in the right bin it actually gets recycled and turned into other products” he said.

Net-zero carbon emissions target 'is absurd and would kill off industries': Jones | Sky News AustraliaSky News host Alan Jones says “the most dangerous enemy in our country today are those on the conservative side of politics who want to appease the authors of this latest economic suicide note, net-zero carbon dioxide emissions”. \n\nMr Jones said a policy agenda of net-zero carbon emissions would “kill off” a number of industries in Australia through the implementation of an “absurd ideology”. \n\n“Ideology rules the roost, but ideology doesn't always provide jobs”.\n\nMr Jones said politicians are standing “silent” on this issue while trying to “appease the green left” by “playing Russian roulette with our economy”. \n\nThe target has currently been adopted by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and 80 other countries across the world.\n\n“Net-zero carbon dioxide emissions doesn't just mean no coal, it means no gas to cook with; it means no diesel to power trucks and heavy machinery.\n\n“It means no exports of coal or gas; it means no meat or dairy because animals produce 14 per cent, so get rid of all agriculture”.\n\nImage: Getty \n nuclear It’s a flow effect which no one thinks about. Alan Jones is speaking truth bhp have a net zero emissions goal. Do you think they're on a mission to destroy their company?
