Lawler condemns Feds

NT News - - NEWS -

THE Ter­ri­tory’s En­vi­ron­ment Min­is­ter has joined her state coun­ter­parts across Vic­to­ria, Queens­land, Western Aus­tralia and the ACT in con­demn­ing the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment’s “de­lib­er­ate in­ac­tion” on cli­mate change.

NT En­vi­ron­ment Min­is­ter Eva Lawler said the min­is­ters will not agree to a joint state­ment on cli­mate change un­til the fed­eral min­is­ter comes up with a plan to tackle it.

“The re­port re­leased by the In­ter­gov­ern­men­tal Panel on Cli­mate Change shows global warm­ing is a very real threat to fu­ture gen­er­a­tions,” she said.

“Dur­ing the meet­ing to­day, Fed­eral Min­is­ter for En­vi­ron­ment Melissa Price only wanted the re­port noted but the state and ter­ri­tory La­bor min­is­ters called for greater ac­tion to be taken by the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment. The time to act on cli­mate change is now.”
