The Minister For Mining The Environment has put his money where his mouth his, taking bold action after signing the Paris Agreement in New York last week.
Mr Hunt was seen speaking to his mining donors shortly after the signing ceremony.
Concerned about the Minister’s support for the Paris agreement, one mining donor, named “Rod”, demanded the government continue its generous fossil fuel subsidies, screaming “show me the money”. Over the past three years fossil fuel companies have donated $2.4 million to the Liberal Party and will receive $7.7 billion in subsidies in 2016-2017 in return.
In response, Mr Hunt demanded more donations due to increased international pressure to take climate action. He also screamed “show me the money!”
The interaction escalated from there and was caught on film.
