I do look forward to the minister coming back with those specific figures and also an answer as to whether that is going into Annex B. But I ask a further supplementary question: how can the government justify a target that is not science and evidence based? A five per cent reduction target, given the eight- to 14-gigaton emissions gap to keep us under two degrees is there. How can you justify a target that is not science and evidence based?

If the Greens were fair dinkum about science and evidence, they wouldn't be opposing nuclear energy and GM agriculture.
