Australia to ‘fall short’ compared to other countries’ climate targets | Sky News AustraliaSky News contributor Nicholas Reece says Australia is “falling well short of many countries we like to compare ourselves with” when it comes to targets for emissions cuts.\n\nSpeaking to Chris Kenny, Mr Reece said “the sad reality” is with another three years of the Morrison government, it will be hard for Labor to achieve their emission reduction target of 45 per cent by 2030 if they win the next election.\n\nLabor is distancing itself from committing to former leader Bill Shorten's 45 per cent emissions reduction target but remains adamant any new climate policy will be more ambitious than the Coalition’s aim of 26 to 28 per cent.\n\nImage: Getty Nicholas_Reece No need to worry, Labor won’t win the next election.

Australia should ‘name and shame’ cyber attack perpetrators | Sky News AustraliaThe Australian government should have the confidence to “name and shame” countries that undertake cyber attacks against us, according to the Australian Strategic Policy Institute’s Fergus Hanson.\n\nAustralian intelligence agencies have reportedly determined China was responsible for a cyber attack on parliament.\n\nThe attack targeted political parties before the May federal election.\n\nThe Coalition has refused to confirm if China is behind the incident, while Beijing has denied any involvement.\n\nMr Hanson has told Sky News the government is caught “in a halfway house” on this issue.\n\n“We have clearly got someone in a very senior level in government indicating they want the public to know that China was behind this attack, but we are not coming out and officially making the statement that it is China.”

US ‘locked and loaded’ after Saudi oil attack as prices soar | Sky News AustraliaGlobal oil prices have surged following the bombing of two massive Saudi energy plants at the weekend.\n\nAnalysts have warned motorists are likely to feel the effects in coming days as pump prices are set to rise with fears Australians could be hit by a petrol hike of 10 cents per litre within weeks. \n\nDrones bombed the Abqaiq facility in Saudi Arabia and the Khurais oil field, operated by the state-owned Saudi Aramco, on Saturday according to the kingdom's interior ministry.\n\nThe plants produce nearly six per cent of the world's oil and half of Saudi's, with the attack cutting output by 5.7 million barrels a day.\n\nSaudi Arabia has promised to fill in the production gap with its reserves but Aramco said the damage could take weeks to repair.\n\nOn Sunday United States President Donald Trump said oil from the US' emergency fuel storage of 640 million barrels, held in Louisiana and Texas, will be released if needed.\n\nThe bombing has heightened tensions in the region with the US claiming Iran was responsible for the assault which was almost immediately claimed by Iran-backed Houthi rebels from Yemen.\n\nMr Trump said the US had fresh evidence to back up Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's allegation that Iran was responsible.\n\nMr Trump tweeted the US is 'locked and loaded' — depending on verification — and he is waiting to hear from the Saudis about who they believe attacked the plants. Maybe a rapid adoption of EV's is in order? auspol
Trump ‘has handled Iran badly’ | Sky News AustraliaThe Australian’s Greg Sheridan says US President Donald Trump has “handled Iran pretty badly”. \n\n“The key moment was when he ordered a military strike in retaliation for Iran shooting down an American drone but then aborted the military strike,” Mr Sheridan said.\n\nHis remarks come after two large government-run oil processing facilities in Saudi Arabia were struck by a series of drone strikes on Saturday, causing explosions, huge fires and prompting the nation to cut production. \n\nIranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zar lashed out at US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for suggesting Tehran was responsible for the attack, which compromised global oil supply.\n\nSpeaking to Sky News, the journalist said while Mr Trump’s prudence in the use of force is “admirable”, US adversaries are “working it out”.\n\nHe compared Mr Trump to former President Barack Obama and noted “the threat is there, the follow through is not”. \n\nImage: AP\n realDonaldTrump what would a stooge like sheridan know realDonaldTrump Iran knows trump has no balls.
