Labor notes the hypocrisy of this motion coming from the Greens. When Labor attempted to legislate an economy-wide carbon price in 2009, it was the Greens who sided with the Tony Abbott-led opposition, who voted it down in an act of vandalism that has gone down in the annals of climate change infamy. Labor took comprehensive climate change policy to the last election and we will do so again next year, and no amount of grandstanding by the Greens will cause the Australian people to forget that, when push comes to shove, the Greens choose political opportunism over practical climate action every time.
