Stumbling into the messy politicisation of the climate crisis

Stumbling into the messy politicisation of the climate crisis

In what seems like "another life ago", I heard in 2006, soon after stumbling accidentally into the climate conversation, that if the discussion ever became politicised, all was lost.

That happened almost immediately and the difficulty was illustrated just recently when the former Australian Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull (pictured), was appointed to a newly created New South Wales net-zero emissions and clean economy advisory board and in almost the same breath, removed from the role.

The reasons were many, but they were primarily driven by political interests.

RenewEconomy published a story about this latest development.
