Is Xenophon climate enemy No. 1?

The Climate Insitute’s pollute-o-meter surprisingly rates Senator Xenophon very poorly. He could be the key to a more sensible climate policy under a Coalition government, but needs to work harder on policy and less on media grandstanding.

With the federal election just months away, the Climate Institute has released its ‘Pollute-o-meter’, which rates the major election candidates on the effectiveness of their climate change policies. 

As you’d expect the Greens rate at the top, but what’s surprising is how badly Senator Nick Xenophon ranks – 0.5 stars out of five. 

The overall results out of five are:

1)--Greens – 5 stars

2)--Labor – 2.5 stars
