Question to the Environment Minister on climate change

My question is to the Minister for the Environment and Water. In a July Press Club address about the State of the environment report, you stated, 'Global warming multiplies environmental pressures everywhere.' The IPCC, the pre-eminent international body on the science of climate, again, just two days ago, emphatically stated there must be no new fossil fuel projects if we are to meet our Paris agreement obligations. Does the government accept or reject the IPCC advice?
