A report commissioned by the Australian Conservation Foundation contends that the nation will be responsible for up to 13 per cent of the world’s carbon dioxide emissions by 2030. Prepared by German think tank Climate Analytics, the report takes into account emissions from Australian fossil fuel exports that are burnt in other countries. The Minerals Council of Australia estimated in 2018 that demand for imported thermal coal in Asia could rise by up to 400 million tonnes by 2030, while Gavan McFadzean from the ACF rejects the suggestion that Australia should not be responsible for what other countries do with its fossil fuels.
