EVERYONE’S ON BOARD FOR CLIMATE ACTION, EXCEPT ABBOTT

EVERYONE’S ON BOARD FOR CLIMATE ACTION, EXCEPT ABBOTT

 

Labor welcomes the cooperation of the business, manufacturing, energy, social services and environmental sectors on one of the most challenging policy areas of our time.

 

Labor agrees that climate change will have serious economic, environmental and social impacts on Australia.

 

Labor’s policies in this area will reflect that understanding and ensure meaningful action and economic growth.

 

Tony Abbott and some in his party seem to be the only ones who haven’t quite recognised this yet.

 

We thank these groups for their efforts to develop guiding principles for climate action.

 

Labor has met with the group and we will continue to consult with them as we develop our climate policy.

 

With each day, the Liberal Party force themselves further out of step by not accepting the need for responsible and meaningful action on climate change.
