Mark Butler :: COALITION'S CAUCUS OF CLIMATE DENIERS

COALITION'S CAUCUS OF CLIMATE DENIERS

Date:  24 April 2014



What’s the collective noun for a group of climate deniers? Coalition Caucus.

Liberal
Member for Dawson George Christensen has today spilled the beans on the
Coalition’s real view on climate change, saying “a number” of Liberals
disagree that climate change is real.

Mr Christensen also backed the
views of Tony Abbott’s chief business adviser, Maurice Newman, who this
week disagreed with 97 per cent of the world’s scientists, 
telling the ABC that there is no evidence of man-made climate change or any climate change at all.



The Age revealed today that
Tony Abbott’s Commission of Audit hasn’t even considered the
Coalition’s Direct Action policy saying, “The Commission of Audit
couldn’t really look at it because we didn’t have a policy to look at.”



The fact that the Commission of
Audit hasn’t assessed the Liberals Direct Action policy speaks volumes
about what a sham of a policy this really is. 



Direct Action will pay big polluters to pollute, and cost Australian taxpayers more – talk about twisted priorities.


Australia can’t afford to do nothing on pollution – but that’s exactly what Tony Abbott is doing.


The Abbott Government has the
wrong priorities and is not taking any meaningful action against climate
change. In Tony Abbott’s own words - climate change is "absolute crap".



Australia needs an effective system in place to reduce pollution and address climate change.
