Parrys Raines: [intergenerational; equity] As a young person, I'm concerned with the current government's lack of action on climate change. Minister Hunt, what carbon reduction targets will you be taking to the climate change conference in Paris at the end of the year to talk about intergenerational equity. Will it be the 30% recommended by the climate change authority, and if not, why not?

Greg Hunt: [consultations; WWF; Greenpeace; post-; lift;] Sure, we'll  set those as we say in the middle of the year. Right now, we're holding consultations with groups around Australia. In the last week Julie Bishop and myself have met with, whether it is the climate institute WWF, Greenpeace, business group, academic groups, senior business leaders and we will be doing of that this week and taking responses from around the country. As a result of the auction, what we do see is that not only will we achieve our 2020 targets, we've already achieved our first Kyoto targets, we'll achieve our second targets and we'll not just make them, we'll beat them, but the speed limits as to what we can do post 2020 have been lifted. So, we'll make a really constructive contribution and I'm passionate about doing this and as of now we can do more than we could have done two weeks ago.
