Australian Politics & History

Your number one choice for subpar analysis and commentary for everything going down under.

Back in 2010, the Greens Senators sharing a moment of intimacy after fighting so hard to see the passing of the Carbon Tax.

The repeal today is a sad step back.ย  Over the world there are more than 1000 climate change policies, including:

Saudia Arabia: $100b investment in solar energy

South Korea: Carbon Pricing which it got through with bipartisan support

China: Clean Coal Technology and trialing ETS in select cities as well as massive investment in renewable

NZ: Emission Trading Scheme well before anyone else

Germany: $263 billion investment in renewables and a goal to be 100% renewable by 2050

European Union: ETS Scheme

The list goes on. Even the US is moving forward. It is sad that a country as rich as Australia does not have a clear climate change policy and a leadership that steadfastly refuses to listen to literally every leading scientific body. This is beyond embarrassing.
