The politics of climate change has seen a significant change in recent days, according to The Australian’s Editor-at-Large Paul Kelly.
Mr Kelly cited the Business Council of Australia’s recent report, which embraced “a really detailed structure for change, a radical structure for change in terms of the medium-term targets that it wants”.
“And of course, the announced position, the change of position by the News Limited tabloids,” Mr Kelly told Sky News Australia.
“There are two political consequences from these changes – the first is that they will help Scott Morrison get up the policy change that he wants within the Coalition parties.
“And secondly, they will help the Labor party against the Morrison government at the next election.”
