The Australian government will look at implementing a technology investment target to avoid committing to an internationally imposed net-zero emissions target by 2050.

The government said the new target would be the most effective way for the nation to meet the Paris commitment.

Nationals MPs are against Australia's commitment to the target over fears it would impact manufacturing jobs. The new plan will be presented at the UN Climate Summit in Glasgow, Scotland. About 81 countries have so far adopted the internationally imposed 2050 zero emissions target. Image: News Corp Australia

The Nationals 'are as one' on climate policy: Michael McCormack | Sky News AustraliaDeputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack says it is easy for the Liberal MP Trent Zimmerman to go for a “frolic” and argue for a net zero emissions target by 2050 because, “he’s the member for North Sydney [and] I’m not the member for North Sydney”.\n\nMr McCormack said such a target is “not on the agenda,” but the policies the Coalition took to the 2019 election will be met with a reliance on “technology not taxation”.\n\nThere has been a gradual build up of pressure on the deputy prime minister over the Bridget McKenzie sports rorts scandal, claims that he does not stand up to the prime minister, and divisions over climate change policy, but he said “as Nationals we are as one with” climate policy.\n\n'[Prime Minister] Scott [Morrison] and I agree with just about everything,' he said.\n\nMr McCormack told Sky News host Sharri Markson although there are growing doubts over his leadership, he is “not going anywhere”.\n\nImage: News Corp Australia M_McCormackMP He's the Member for Santos M_McCormackMP Well answered. Mr McCormack's confidence is growing, MSM reports his leadership is in trouble seem fake. Unless we are told who is making these claims, the reports do not mean much. In saying that when we are told who is making the claims they still might not mean much. M_McCormackMP More people in Northern Sydney that voted National.

EXCLUSIVE: Chinese Ambassador calls for end to 'harsh' coronavirus travel ban | Sky News AustraliaChina’s ambassador to Australia Cheng Jingye has called on Australia to remove “harsh” travel ban restrictions in the wake of the deadly coronavirus outbreak.\n\nIn an exclusive interview with Sky News Chief Anchor Kieran Gilbert, Mr Cheng said the travel ban “unnecessarily” interfered with trade and travel and said Australia should be “coolheaded and not panic”.\n\n“We are deeply disappointed by the restrictive measures that have been taken because as I see it they are out of proportion,' he said. \n\n“As you said it is inconsistent with the professional recommendations of the World Health Organisation. \n\n“We have expressed our strong wish and hope that the Australian government in its next review will take into account the whole situation and take a balanced approach and consider removing those harsh restrictions or at least relax restrictions.”\n\nMr Gilbert pointed out that China itself had taken extraordinary measures well beyond recommendations of the WHO by detaining millions of people in Wuhan and the broader Hubei province.\n\nMr Cheng responded saying the situation in China was “totally different” from that in Australia.\n\n“We need to take extra measures to stop the spread of the disease whereas here the situation is totally different,” he said. \n\n“Australia is only one of a few countries which has taken such sweeping and stringent restrictive measures on travel.\n\n“We hope the (Australian) government will take a balanced approach and remove harsh restrictions or at least relax them.”\n No you keep the virus 🦠 contained by keeping tight restrictions on travel — look at the death toll climbing in China daily The Cheng is a monster.

Axing of Holden is 'a day of great shame for Australia' | Sky News AustraliaSky News contributor Nicholas Reece says “I think it’s a day of great shame for Australia,” following Monday’s announcement General Motors will axe iconic brand Holden after 72 years of operation in the nation. \n\nGM International Operations Senior Vice President Julian Blissett released a statement explaining financial woes have led to the demise of Holden.\n\nThe shutdown is expected to cost at least 600 jobs as General Motors ceases making vehicles suitable for Australian roads. \n\nIt comes three years after local manufacturing ended when the Holden plant in Adelaide was closed. \n\n'It’s not just the end of a great Australian business but it’s the end of an era I think,' Mr Reece told Sky News host Peta Credlin. \n\nImage: Getty It was sad but inevitable. Ford wouldve gone the same way had it not come up with the ranger and fleet deals with the mondeo and fiesta/focus Thanks Joe! All Holden had to do was make a Car the us Aussies wanted to buy. Every business lives and dies by its bottom line. I liked the fact we tried to bale them out over many years. But the truth always catches up. GM never gave a shit about Australia. AND I just bought one, :(
