Sadly many of our politicians are climate science deniers (despite floods in India, winter bushfires in New South Wales and the hottest European summer on record).
These politicians have successfully changed the focus from creating effective environment policy to propaganda about power prices.
Don’t be fooled: unstable and high electricity prices are a direct result of the energy companies manipulating the market.
There is clearly an environmental policy vacuum in our major parties.
We deserve better government.
We need to make it known that the lack of will to regulate the behaviour of energy companies (thereby controlling prices) and the lack of courage to create control of carbon emissions is not good enough.
