The Glasgow climate summit has “already began to unravel” before Scott Morrison’s plane has even left the tarmac, says Sky News host Peta Credlin.

It comes amid news of a multi-national push for methane cuts ahead of the COP26 Climate Change Conference this weekend.

Ms Credlin said the “fundamental problem” with Australia signing up to net zero by 2050 is that “once you concede the principle, it’s very hard to avoid the practice”.

“By accepting the so-called moral imperative to eliminate emissions by mid-century, it’s hard now for us to side-step demands, for all the costly and damaging measures that the climate zealots say we need to get there,” she said.

“No new taxes and no new spending: that’s how the Prime Minister says we’ll achieve net zero.

“Essentially, he says, we’re just going to continue our current glide path, with the existing policy settings, and the existing green funds that have already enabled us to cut emissions by 20 per cent since 2005, and that will produce a cut of some 35 per cent by 2030; and of course wait for all those things, he says, that haven’t been invented but are part of our plan.

“Righto, but that won’t come close to satisfying the climate zealots because they don’t want emissions cutting to be easy.

“They want it to be hard, because getting emissions down is not actually what this is all about; it’s about changing the way we live, to upend developed countries, redistribute the wealth to developing countries and to do with green policy, what revolutions could not.”
