Climate Change Is Humanity’s Biggest Threat Until The Election, Morrison Says

Announcing a new range of policies to tackle climate change, Prime Minister Scott Morrison has told journalists that global warming is the biggest challenge the earth faces over the next 10-12 weeks.

Just months after coming to power off the back of a push to scrap the party’s climate policies altogether, Mr Morrison said there was a lot of work to be done. “This has now become an emergency. Quite simply, we can’t ignore climate change any longer. There’s only about two and a half months to go”.

He said his party had a strong history of believing in climate science during election years. “We support climate change when it matters most: in the lead up to a national poll. If you believe the data – which we do every three years ­– it’s hard to argue that we need to act now”.

He said the Coalition’s plans would reduce heat in marginal electorates by up to two degrees.
