In question time today, the Minister for Climate Change and Energy made a specific statement about me which was a very selective part of the statement. The statement in full is: 'Reality is going to strike very quickly, and Labor's plan is going to increase the cost of everything, and the Australian people won't wear that. If you look at what is happening in Europe, where reality is biting right now, we don't want to see Australia turn to that. We should take whatever action is in the national interest, including leaving the Paris Agreement if that is what is necessary.' Clearly, the minister was not interested in the national interest.
