When you truly love someone you want them to drown in record-breaking floods or burn in winter bushfires.
Love makes you do crazy things. Sometimes it makes you move half way around the world. Sometimes it makes you choreograph an elaborate flashmob for your marriage proposal.
Other times it makes you take a lump of coal to parliament, dump the National Energy Guarantee, pull out of the Paris agreement, support megamines, subsidise coal-fired power stations and generally burn as much coal as possible to cause immense suffering to all current and future generations of the people you are supposed to represent.
Different strokes for different folks I guess.
Cynics question the PM’s love for all Australians but have no doubt that his love of coal is creepy and suffocating. They’ve made it clear that unless he breaks up with fossil fuels, they’ll dump him as soon as possible.
