What is the Greens policy on transitioning workers in coal mining regions, and their assets (the family home, for example) to the places where there will be new, green, jobs?
What about people who do not want to go? What about the communities that exist now?
These are complex and difficult problems. Not amenable to simple, easy to remember, solutions.
Wambers, the Greens will not be forming government and so have not developed in depth policy to address these. Frankly, given many of their members, I think a Greens led government would be scary.
However, the point was made that they were fringe and lunatic with their policy and I dont actually think they are. Their policy aims are reasonable IMO. They arent far left, they are centre left.
Of course they won’t be forming Government but they give their preferences to the ALP and have Senate seats where the Government doesn’t have the balance of power.
