Scott Morrison insists coal has a future despite COP26 deal

Scott Morrison has been at odds with Boris Johnson over the future of coal after the British Prime Minister’s COP26 climate summit declared fossil fuel “sounds the death knell”.

When asked if he agreed with the claim, Prime Minister Morrison replied, “No – I don’t believe so”.

It comes with the federal government’s refusal to update its 2030 carbon reduction target despite saying Australia will “meet and beat” its climate targets.
