The PUSHBACK is ON!
There are many actively lobbying for Tony Burke to reverse his "You Get Cash" announcement, especially the "We'll Ignore Your Emissions" part of the statement. Green groups are outraged: The Climate Institute's Corey Watts (ex-Australian Conservation Foundation) responded to the new deal for Agriculture in disbelief: "Including agricultural offsets by exempting agriculture from any liability for their own emissions and asking other sectors to pay is a situation that can’t last." The Institute has never been a friend to farmers.
