” Scott Morrison has signalled the Australian government will not increase its efforts to combat climate change despite an extended bushfire crisis and a record-breaking heatwave.
Returning to work on Sunday after a controversial family holiday in Hawaii, the Australian prime minister apologised for his absence on top of the mea culpa he offered on Friday while still overseas…
” Morrison then sought to turn the page on the episode by unilaterally declaring “the time for that discussion is over”.
Morrison said there was “no argument” about the links “between broader issues of global climate change and weather events around the world” but it was “not a credible suggestion” to make a direct connection to any single fire event…
” Minutes after calling for an end to division, arguing, partisanship and point scoring, Morrison said the Coalition is reducing emissions without the “reckless job-destroying and economy-crunching targets that others are seeking to force upon us”.
The government’s own projections show Australia [now] is on course for 50% renewables by 2030 – a target which Morrison labelled as reckless and economy-wrecking in the May election campaign.
Yup. Morrison tells the public the same lies he tells his base. The only difference with the Fake President we have in the GOUSA is that Morrison has learned to craft his lies to say he hasn’t changed policies at all – when obviously he’s been pushed into doing so.
