Tony Abbott’s scepticism will shock Liberal voters
Australian Greens Leader Bob Brown has said that Tony Abbott’s stated
scepticism on climate change today will shock many Liberal voters.
“And in a world where both big and small business understand the science
of climate change and the need for appropriate action, Abbott’s comments
will also dismay most business operators,” Senator Brown said.
“Abbott’s failure on climate change is shepherding the government’s
weakness at Copenhagen. For instance, the Rudd government’s failure to
announce adequate funds for developing countries to deal with climate
change, described as an insult by the spokesperson for the G77 plus
China developing nations group, Lumumba Stanislaus Di-Aping.”
“Oxfam estimates Australia’s baseline contribution should be over $3
billion a year.”
“The make-up of Tony Abbott’s new front bench makes Sir Robert Menzies
look pink,” Senator Brown said.
