Summary

Edit

The majority voted against a motion introduced by SA Senator Sarah Hanson-Young (Greens), which means it failed.

Motion text

That, in the opinion of the Senate, the following is a matter of urgency:

The fact that the Government is failing to do its fair share of limiting global heating to 1.5C above pre-industrial temperatures by continuing to approve new coal mines and gas fields and refusing to adopt strong 2030 emissions targets of 75% below 2005 levels.

Votes Not passed by a modest majority

Nobody rebelled against their party.
