Australia has experienced the drop in annual greenhouse gases for the 1st time, because of the drive of renewable energy technology across the nation, since 2015. However, if this rate continues at this speed to decline, they would be 68 years late to the commitment they made to the Paris Agreement.
From July to September 2019, the national greenhouse gas emissions topped at 133.1 million tonnes of carbon dioxide which is equivalent (Mt-CO2-e). For the following 12 months, greenhouse gas emissions were essentially 0.2 per cent lower than what it was in the previous year. However, this resulted in the first-ever decline in yearly pollution since 2015.
While the emissions across Australia seemed to have hit the peak and then decline, the leap of this decrease is not fast enough. They would not meet the Paris initiative of eliminating our greenhouse gases by 26 to 28 per cent by the year 2030.In spite of the absence of speed in our elimination of carbon emissions, they are still reaching their goals when it comes to generating and providing electricity through renewable energy sources. According to Drum, renewable energy formed 24 per cent of their market’s total during the 2 quarter
