The most innovative Australian Prime Minister since Tony Abbott has done it again. Dubbed the “Fresh Prince” by his colleagues for his fresh and original approach to policymaking, Malcom Turnbull has announced some incredible new innovations in climate policy. The Australian government will “meet and beat” its emissions reductions targets for 2020 by increasing emissions and opening new coal mines.
Traditionally, climate policy options have been either to reduce emissions by reducing emissions or increase emissions by increasing emissions. Until the innovations of Mr Turnbull, no one realised you could reduce emissions by increasing emissions.
With the Environment Minister’s PHD in creative accounting and the Prime Minister’s impressive knack for selling Amway products, Greg Hunt and Malcom Turnbull are doing wonderful things for the climate.
The innovation doesn’t stop with climate change. The new $1 billion innovation package includes a new initiative to creatively convince voters that violence against women is terrible unless it’s the government’s violence against asylum seeker women, in which case it’s A-OK.
