The Liberals' radical turn on climate change

Five years ago, a near majority of the Liberal Party accepted the scientific consensus on climate change, but under Tony Abbott the party has taken a radically ideological path, isolating dissenters like Malcolm Turnbull.

There is much that is still unclear about Tony Abbott and so it remains unclear about the direction -- to many, the surprising direction -- in which he is taking his government. But there is little doubt that the Abbott-led parliamentary Liberal Party is not the Liberal Party that Malcolm Turnbull once aspired to lead to power.
