A year and a half after the govt put gas executives in charge of the COVID Commission, and weeks after COP26, we have today a new national plan to subsidise gas pipelines across Australia. Here's the report, lowlights threaded energy.gov.au/publications/2…

And the LNP already agreed to go further when they signed up to the Paris Agreement. And in the original climate convention.
“Of course we should commit to go further” than the emissions target the Liberals took to the election says @Birmo #auspol

This chart from Santos' 2021 'climate report' is a perfect illustration of how the dodgy 'safeguard mechanism' adjusts emissions "limits" upwards as the country's worst polluters get even worse: santos.com/wp-content/upload… (next step: they get carbon credits for this scam)

Interested in analysis of Legalise Cannabis' performance. Currently on 6% in Qld senate, beating Palmer and Newman, 7% in the NT, and beating UAP in some other states. How does a party poll that highly with virtually zero publicity? How did name attract so many votes this time?

Just putting it out there…good local candidates focusing on issues of concern to their electorates are more important to voters than the ability of people to remember the cash rate #auspol #tealbath

People standing for stronger action on climate is the consistent message tonight - across inner city, suburban & rural seats. Big swings to the Indies, to the Greens, to Labor over LNP (in two party seats). An incredible, amazing mandate. 👊🏻 Australia! 💛💚 #AusVotes22
