Fighting climate change will be hard, (not fighting it will be worse

Guardian 15th Dec 2019, One of the toughest things for those of us who actually accept the science on climate change is to maintain optimism that anything will be done. After weeks like the one we’ve just had, I sometimes wonder how long it will be before our major political parties shift from talking about reducing emissions and instead arguing over how to best deal with the impact ofclimate change.

You know the sort of thing – “Should we means-test free
access to P2 masks?” or “Should there be a mutual obligation regime for
climate-change relief?” – and before you know it the Australian and the
other climate change-denying News Corp media outlets will be running
editorials about how “we need to get more people off climate change
welfare”. It is a shift we need to fight against – the war to prevent
disastrous climate change is not lost, but it will be if we allow political
parties to raise the white flag.
