Climate Change Is A Critical Issue In Australian Election Or Something

You know what, I’m actually all for passing all the ‘climate change’ laws and stuff

Climate change critical issue in Eden-Monaro byelection as 6 in 10 voters say more action needed by government

The Morrison government will come under pressure over climate change in the looming byelection in Eden-Monaro, with a new poll showing six in 10 voters in the seat believe the Coalition is not doing enough to tackle the problem.

The polling, commissioned by the progressive activist group GetUp, also illustrates the far-reaching impact of the summer of bushfires across the key New South Wales electorate, with nearly six in seven people surveyed saying they were affected in some way.

The Liberals fired the starting gun on their campaign on Sunday as their newly preselected candidate, Dr Fiona Kotvojs, sought to emphasise her green credentials by saying she had solar panels on her house and believed “that humans contribute to that changing climate”.

OK, by-election, blah blah blah, people running against each other, green credentials, lowering emissions

The survey, conducted by uComms on behalf of GetUp, polled 879 residents across Eden-Monaro last Wednesday night. It found 59% of the sample agreed with the statement that “the government is not doing enough to address climate change” – including 48% who strongly agreed.

About 27% of the sample disagreed with the statement – including 12% strongly.

Roughly 59% of the sample said they would be more likely to vote for a candidate who supported publicly-funded renewable energy projects to create secure, full-time jobs in the local area, while 17% said they would be less likely to support such a candidate.

The government should pass all the laws and stuff, give the people what they want. Let them live under the policies they want. See what happens when their beliefs go from theoretical to game time.
