and with Biden's coming virtual conference on Climate looming, Albo is grabbing the opportunity to land a few easy blows. Australia is vulnerable on climate and could take serious economic damage if a substantial policy isn't forthcoming...
Must have enjoyed a bit of mutual fondling with Twiggy after the morning stretches.Meanwhile, Liberal MPs representing wealthy Sydney and Melbourne seats fear they will face an electoral backlash, if their party isn't seen to be taking the issue seriously.
As a result, the PM has been pivoting towards the target slowly in an attempt to avoid too much infighting.
In his speech, Mr Morrison even appeared to mock those inner-city voters who have long campaigned for climate action, stating, "we will not achieve net zero in the cafes, dinner parties and wine bars of our inner cities."
He said that net zero will be "won" by the energy, industrial, agriculture, mining and manufacturing sectors, pointing to work BHP, Andrew Forrest and AGL are doing to reduce emissions as examples.
"It will be won in places like the Pilbara, the Hunter, Gladstone, Portland, Whyalla, Bell Bay and the Riverina," he added.
"In the factories of our regional towns and outer suburbs. In the labs of our best research institutes and scientists."
"This is where the road to net zero is being paved in Australia."
"It is time to look at the other side of the coin – the huge potential for clean energy to create hundreds of thousands of secure, well-paid jobs," Mr Albanese will say.
"I am not just talking about jobs for people mining lithium, copper and nickel or those who will transform those materials into batteries."
"I'm talking about a revolution in jobs growth right across the Australian economy based on one inescapable fact – renewable energy is not only clean, but cheap, and getting cheaper."
It is language similar to that used by President Biden, who has sought to sell his climate policies as job creation plans.
