Stuck with bipartisan carbon delusion

Lawns are green again and voters have gone cool on climate change. So much so, says Rob Oakeshott, it may not matter to them if Labor gets behind Tony Abbott’s plan.

A friend leaned over at a recent dinner function and said “forget carbon – nobody cares about carbon anymore”. And he is probably right.

If climate change was front-of-mind in the run-up to the 2007 election, at a time when 12 years of drought had turned suburban lawns into little deserts, things are very different in 2013.
