Michelle Grattan on AUKUS fallout and the government moving to net zero

University of Canberra Professional Fellow Michelle Grattan alongside University of Canberra Associate Professor Caroline Fisher discuss the week in politics.

This week the pair discuss the announcement of the AUKUS, in particular the reaction of the French to what has been seen as a failure of democracy on behalf of Australia, who has reneged on their previous defence deal – resulting in ongoing tension between nations involved.

They also discuss Australia’s climate change policy, in particular Treasurer Josh Frydenburg’s recent announcement of the pathway forward for the nation towards emissions reductions. With this announcement has paved the way for Australia to take a firm emissions target to the coming Glasgow conference.
