    Doubt it. Social media is a lefty bubble. Proven at many elections. People are angry and he’s an easy target. If this was at the end of his 3 years he’d be worried but it’s not.

    would’ve it have even mattered who you voted for?
    The government here has chopped and changed every bunch of years forever.
    How the f**k can global warming be blamed on only one of them?...or one prime minister?

    He'll win again more than likely. People will forget his holiday and realise he didn't cause the fires and forget the anger.

    Yeah. If the greenies hadn’t held labor to ransom 10 years ago we would have had a whole different carbon trading scheme. If Abbott/Dutton hadn’t gunned for Malcolm, then a different ETS would be in place.

    To blame 1 guy for this is absurd

    It has been a slow burn (excuse the pun)

    But he is now the figurehead of coal/selfish action/bad government and he has been implicit in selling that message. As a leader it's reasonable for him to take the brunt of it.

    But this is the leader that has reflected the majority view for probably 25 years, so we reap what we sow.

    Yes a tax would have saved us. Businesses buying credits from random places in the world would have stopped the south coast burning.

    I wouldn’t label it bad government if they are responding to the majority view to put local jobs before weird carbon credit things when the likes of China march on.

    But Scomo was doing that ETS thing with mally before he was rolled by Dutton/Abbott and has said a billion times he accepts climate change, so maybe there’ll be appetite for change after this.

    It would have put a price on a harmful externality.

    It would have encouraged businesses to find ways of avoiding harmful outputs because business hates paying for shit.

    It is the best market based mechanism you could come up with. But Abbott the communist thought a direct action plan was better.

    Really?

    He took it in to parliament for a demeaning stunt to tell us all to not be afraid of it.

    Now you don't want him to own it.

    f**k I wish I had that lack of accountability in my job.
