Government figures show Australia's greenhouse gas emissions rising

The Government insists that Australia can still meet its climate change targets as the country’s greenhouse gas emissions are continuing to go up.

It is shown on the latest report card from the Environment department that emissions rose by 0.8 per cent for the year until June.

"These figures show that Australia's emissions per capita and emissions per unit of GDP are now at their lowest level in 27 years," Environment Minister Josh Frydenberg said.

But Professor Will Steffen from the Climate Council said the Government should not divide the results by the population.
