After a Liberal MP made headlines believing that kids need to be taught ‘both sides’ of climate change, I’m of the mind that we adults need to stop talking.
The EFIC bill didn’t hit the headlines, but it really should have, as both sides of government voted to fast-track taxpayer funds to fossil fuel projects.
Barnaby Joyce’s recent performance on Insiders proved one thing. The government continues to state that renewables are an option, while their actions say otherwise. If they pray at the altar of coal, sing it loud.
Valerie Rockefeller is a divisive, transformative figure, as she’s shifting from the fossil fuels that made her family rich to renewables. But, is it a move to secure the environment, or the next income stream?
I come from a family who have worked in the fossil fuel sector, but in the face of overwhelming evidence – and apathy from the government – it’s time for a change.
