A random sample of responses to his climate change question finds:
- 51.6% say support the ETS and/or don't sell out on your previous support for these laws
- 43.2% say no ETS and/or delay it, it's just a tax
- 2.1% say become the leader, presumably implicitly saying no to the ETS as well
- 3.2% say twitter discussion about this is silly
Joe Hockey asked this question as the opposition liberal party is pushing him to become leader. This change will overturn his previous position - and the party's decision last week - to take action on climate change by passing the Australian emissions trading legislation (ETS).
And the current leaders views? “This is not a game . . . We're talking about the future of our planet. We're talking about whether we, the Liberal Party, will want to be a credible, progressive political movement of the 21st century” 27/11/09 Malcolm Turnbull quoted in The Age.
