A climate-friendly government for 2019?
Posted on: Sun 21 Oct 2018
With the 2019 Federal election approaching, action on climate change depends on, but is not guaranteed by, a change of government.
A re-elected Morrison Coalition government would continue Australia’s disgraceful inactivity in combating climate change.
The election of a Labor government and a climate action pact between Labor and the Greens provides some hope, but no reassurance that this might change.
This is the opinion of Peter Sainsbury, a past president of both the Public Health Association of Australia and the Climate and Health Alliance.
To expand on this he speaks to Barometer’s Des Lawrence.
