Just a step to the Right – Australia’s new govt on environment

It’s a bit of a worry. No Education Ministry for Australia -( it’s as if education is just about training kids for jobs – not about an informed, creative minded society in all age groups). As for Environment, – tucked away in a new portfolio (Sustainable Population, Communities, Environment and Water) under Tony Burke.  He could be good – we don’t yet know.

Meanwhile, higher in the Ministerial food chain, are Martin Ferguson, Minister for Resources and Energy and  Greg Combet, Minister for Climate Change and Energy Efficiency. Combet was a coal engineer, degrees in mining engineering and economics.

Lurking in the wings, Bill Shorten, Assistant Treasurer, Minister for Financial Services and Superannuation,  a leader of the putsch that elevated Julia Gillard, and an ardent pro-nuclear advocate. – Christina Macpherson
