Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese has offered an olive-branch to the government on the supposed ‘climate wars,’ but the Coalition has remained in power partly due to Labor’s “bungled” approach to climate policy, says Sky News host Chris Smith.
The government is unlikely to end the supposed climate wars by “solving Labor’s inadequacies” from a political perspective according to Sky News host Chris Smith.
In a step towards bipartisanship, Mr Albanese has moved to abandon the National Energy Guarantee and Clean Energy Target.
Mr Albanese has endorsed Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s energy policy but warned, any new government plans will need to accommodate higher emissions reduction targets.
“Anthony Albanese must be the ultimate political optimist,” Mr Smith said.
