    > LNG emissions were up 16.9%. As Guardian Australia has reported, the rise in industrial pollution has occurred as the government has allowed big polluters to increase emissions limits under a scheme known as the "Safeguard mechanism", which was promised in 2015 to prevent rises above business-as-usual levels.

    > Taylor said emissions from export industries had increased 54% since 2005 levels, but per capita pollution and the emissions intensity of the economy – the amount released relative to production – were at the lowest levels in nearly three decades.
