Abbott government humiliated by World Bank on global warming policy – Greens
Greens Leader Christine Milne says the Abbott government has been further humiliated on global warming by World Bank chief Jim Yong Kim. "Tony Abbott's dismissal of a price on pollution as some kind of extreme ideological tax that harms the economy has been exposed," Greens Leader Christine Milne said. "Australia stands alone and humiliated on global warming policy. "Anyone with any shred of economic credibility accepts the urgent need to shift away from pollution and towards renewable energy, but the Abbott government has dug in to defend the coal industry and the big polluters. "If Tony Abbott doesn't rethink his position on coal, fossil fuel subsides and global warming, the French President won't know whether to laugh or cry when they meet in the coming week.
