A new poll suggests Australians are split on the prospect of Australia quitting the Paris accord on climate change if it brings cheaper power prices.
A Newspoll survey published by The Australian found 45 per cent of surveyed voters would be in favour of quitting the international agreement for cheaper bills, compared with 40 per cent who didn’t favour the move and 15 per cent who weren’t sure.
President Donald Trump pulled the US out of the Paris accord, which commits Australia to a 28 per cent reduction on 2005 emissions in the next 13 years, claiming the cost outweighed the benefit.
