Australia’s electricity emissions jump 5.5% since Coalition dumps carbon price

Australia’s electricity emissions continue to rise, now 5.5 % higher than before carbon price was dumped, putting Australia against the global trend which is seeing energy emissions flat-lining even as the global economy expands.Pitt & Sherry analyst Hugh Saddler says in his latest monthly survey that total emissions from electricity generation in NEM(National Electricity Market, all but Western Australia and the Northern Territory) increased again in year to March 2016.
