Can you guess SCoMo's chief of staff's previous occupation?

You mean the same guy from Rio Tinto who lacquered that piece of coal that Morrison had in parliament so the coal dust wouldn't dirty Morrison's hands during a debate on clean energy.

Hmmm, I thought the Government was doing a great job bringing down carbon emissions.

Considering our population has been increasing, it probably has come down per capita..... :shh

I think we all care, but the question is what can we do that is effective? Maybe we'll send the Greens who hold seats to India and China where the greatest impact can be made, to direct them on how to make a real difference. That would be good for Australia..... :shh

Action on climate change makes economic sense.


Put money into research and sell the technology to the world.

I wonder why the government has stalled the release of climate emissions data for 6 months.

Considering it makes no difference whatsoever, why does anyone care that it will be late? Everyone has completely swallowed the lie that what we do here will somehow save the world. It won't sadly.

It matters because we have just been through an election campaign where the Libs constantly said that emissions were coming down.


Surely they weren't lying, surely not. Not ScoMo, he is as honest as the day is long.

Coal has a place in our energy mix while we transition to renewable energy.


Forget the Government, they are irrelevant.


Industry and the Finance sectors are making the move.


Adani will only go ahead if Gautan Adani puts in $4 billion of his own money (because nobody else will lend him the money)


My bet is that he will find an excuse to pull out of the mine.

Either the Government is incompetent or they just don't care about the the future of the planet.
