The Beagle Editor, Time to dust off?
Our new Prime Minister might not have blood on his hands but has the coal dust worn off after his fearless ceremonial presentation of a chunk in Parliament?
It’s a worry that he has gone on record saying that climate change, and therefore its ramifications it is presumed, will have no bearing in his government’s aim to reduce the price of electricity. Hopefully, this is a ploy to get the Rabbots off his back in his early days when he’s got heaps of Band-Aids to apply.
It is hoped for the country’s sake that he’s not a denier, like the biggest Rabbot, but even if he is one of the people who believe the world wide continuing changes to climate are due to natural causes and are not adversely affected by our polluting efforts, let’s also hope he can see that if we do nothing, we still face many impacts on our lives that will necessitate huge adjustments to our way of life.
It is hoped, too, that he has a convincing plan for getting on side the people who deny we humans have exacerbated the speed and extent of Mother Nature's impacts of cyclic changes, so that his government can accept that we can mitigate some of the bad effects and will be putting appropriate measures into effect, not only for our protection, for the enhancement of our quality of life into the future.
