Former PM Malcolm Turnbull eviscerates Scott Morrison and Angus Taylor’s stance on climate, saying Morrison over-channelled Trump.
Former PM says his biggest regret was a failure to secure meaningful climate policy, but that the Snowy 2.0 expansion is core to his legacy.
Turnbull says Morrison has bowed to Coalition climate deniers, and is setting Australia up for ‘an even bigger mountain to climb’ post-2030.
Turnbull says renewables and storage clearly cheaper than coal, even if ideologues and idiots deny that fact, and can lower emissions as well as cut costs. So should we decarbonise more quickly? Ah, no.
Malcolm Turnbull once said Australia had “every resource available … to meet the challenge of climate change except for one: and that is leadership.” We are still waiting.
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull may be going out, but he is going out fighting. Finally. He puts eligibility of pretender Peter Dutton to legal test, and says he will leave parliament if outed, threatening razor thin majority.
Alan Jones says Craig Kelly should be energy minister. In effect, he already is, because the Coalition’s woeful policy is a craven attempt to pacify the right wing. Despite the NEG, or maybe because of it, a bipartisan approach to energy and climate is as elusive as ever.
Tony Abbott has drawn new battle-lines with interviews and an article that is a horror-show of ignorance, bias, conservative ideology and political dogma. Turnbull’s efforts to appease the right wing has gotten him and the Australian economy nowhere.
Despite Finkel, despite our COP 21 obligations, Turnbull does nothing. No electricity policy, no vehicle emission standards, no policy in other areas of the economy. Worst of all, the Liddell negotiations are a gross misuse of the AEMO reports for political purposes.
With an estimated 3000 deaths pa and many illnesses in Australia due to heart and lung disease from air pollution The Prime Minister’s proposal to keep open heavily polluting Liddell as the solution to his government’s failures in energy policy must be condemned.
