Climate Change

A recent poll suggests that 72% of Bennelong voters believe the Federal government should be doing more to address climate change, whilst 73% do not believe that new coal and gas plants should be a priority for the Federal Government.  The latest report from the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) concluded that it was Code Red for humanity, and that we can no longer delay action on climate.  Where is John Alexander’s voice on the defining issue of our times?  John Alexander voted strongly against treating Government action on climate as a matter of urgency.
