Nationals Senator Matt Canavan says net-zero is a “bad idea” which would see the sacrifice of thousands of jobs.

“From my perspective, net-zero emission is a bad idea because it would cost thousands of jobs in this country and not do anything to protect the environment, fundamentally, that’s the main problem with it,” Mr Canavan told Sky News Australia.

“We promised all these jobs in renewables and they just become sugar hits.

“When turbines are going up, when the solar panels are being installed, sure, there are some jobs but as soon as those projects go into their operational phase, there’s no one there.”
