The Examiner (Australia) reports:
THE Tasmanian Liberals will abolish the state’s Climate Action Council if they win the state election.
The action council was formed in 2009 to provide independent expert advice on Tasmania’s response to climate change…
“We recognise the importance of undertaking practical measures to reduce [Tasmania’s] carbon footprint,” he said.
“[But] these measures need to be real and practical.”
Mr Hodgman did not elaborate on what these measures were, instead criticising Labor and the Greens.
“The carbon tax for example has done nothing to address the issue of climate change, but has made power even more expensive for Tasmanian households and small businesses,” he said.
