CLIMATE CHANGE —
AGRICULTURAL GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS
114. Hon TIM CLIFFORD to the Leader of the House
representing the Premier:
refer to the member for Maylands' recent statement that red meat
production generates higher levels of greenhouse gas emissions than
plant-based alternatives, and the Premier's response, reported in The
West Australian, that he did not share Ms Baker's views about the
sustainability of meat.
(1) Does the
Premier believe that, contrary to peer-reviewed science, emissions from
agriculture are not a significant contributor to climate change?
(2) Could the
Premier please table any reports or advice he has received that has led him to
form this opinion?
Hon STEPHEN DAWSON
On behalf of the Leader of the House,
I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.
I am unable to answer this question
under standing order 105(b).
