Many people who have contacted me were shocked with the federal election result and concerned about what it means for meaningful action on climate change. The Coalition won the federal election on jobs, economic stability and the future, yet failed to deliver a clear vision for the environment or action on climate change. Labor and The Greens were strong on the environment and action on climate change, but didn’t deliver the message of how this can create jobs, boost the economy, and save our nation’s future.
Action on climate change is not only vital for our environment it is critically important for our economy. My op-ed for Junkee urges people to shift the focus from ideology to opportunity and engage with people who voted differently. Read it here: HERE
