Greens, Liberals & Nationals Vote Against Action On Climate Change


The Rudd Labor Government's Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme (CPRS) legislation was today voted down in the Senate by a coalition of Greens, Liberal, National and Family First Party Senators.


This vital legislation which will reduce Australia's greenhouse gas emissions and contribution to global warming was voted against by every non-Labor Senator.


The result of this decision is that rather than implement a strategy to reduce Australia's contribution to climate change, the Opposition and the Greens Party have chosen not to act.


This is further proof that when it comes to the crunch The Greens once again are more interested in politics than real solutions despite the Australian Conservation Foundation, WWF, Tim Flannery and others arguing this would be a step forward.


The Greens Party senators have sided with the climate change sceptics in the Liberal, National and Family First Parties to block the CPRS.


Australia has had more than ten years of inaction under the Howard Government on this issue, and the country cannot afford another ten years of denial from the Opposition and impotence from the Greens Party.


The move by the Greens Party confirms they are a party of opposition rather than a party of action.
