View Full Version : Coalition voters and climate change
I'm just wondering how Coalition voters reconcile their support for Abbott, a climate change denialist, with the urgent need for action on climate change? Also, how do you perceive Abbott's denial of the science of 'peak oil'?
Whilst I am not a rigid coalition member, I have voted for them in the past, and based on my local candidate are considering voting for them this time.
I am no greenie, but I when smart people who have conducted countless studies on the environment tell me there's a big problem, I believe them.
I don't find it difficult to reconcile my support for the Coalition (if I choose to vote that way) based on their climate change policy because of the way labor has mismanaged this issue.
They made the last election predominantly about the environment, then failed to see through what they told us they felt were the most important environmental policies of our time. That's not leadership. And they have been more than happy to dodge the issue that was so important three years ago, this time around.
And don't even get me started on the Citizen's Assembly...
If Malcolm Turnbull was running agains Gillard, my vote would be a done deal.
