Thank you. It is not an unknown tactic, is it: when people want to use the language of prejudice, they then accuse others of using it. The reality is that those are not words that I use, Senator; they are words you have used. It is true that Senator Fielding’s views on climate change are well known. I disagree with them—he is entitled to them, but I disagree with them. I think it is irresponsible to take this view, given the risk to Australia now and in the future.
