Sky News host Paul Murray says he is “sick” of billionaires saying the government has to do more on climate.
The Australian has reported investors are pushing for greater climate ambition, warning of a capital flight.
It comes as the federal government has officially committed to net zero carbon emissions by 2050.
“Sorry, which government is standing in the way of somebody who wants to invest in renewable energy? None,” Mr Murray said.
“Which government is standing in the way of lower carbon emissions technology in agriculture? None.
“Who’s doing it in transport? None. Who’s doing it in cars? None.
“So this argument is about what? We want more money from the taxpayer to invest in something that is guaranteed to be built? To be opposed by very few?”
