Climate, Economics on Government Agenda: Cormann



Finance Minister Mathias Cormann has rejected colleague's concerns about the need for the Liberal Party to do more in terms of climate change in order to get more recent Australian support.

WA Liberal Senator Dean Smith says that the party's diminishing appeal to new voters is "an elephant in the party room" and ignores the danger of government, according to Australian reports.

"We are facing climate change," said Senator Cormanes on Tuesday.

"But in a way that does not make it difficult for young people to get a job, in the future, to make a career in Australia.

"In my opinion, our view is that we must continue to take rigorous and effective action in relation to climate change, but in an economically responsible manner."

Senator Smith's worries, according to news reports, were a concern that 27 percent of 18-34 year olds cast their main voice on the coalition, compared with 46 percent to support work.

He added that the population and climate change policy was crucial to the future success of the coalition.

Green Senator Larissa Vaters says the federal government is not aware of the climate policy "when it comes to them".

"Young people can see the wrestlers for a mile, so it's no wonder that young people do not buy the curvature that the prime minister is covering in the climate," she told reporters in Canberra on Tuesday.

"The tragedy is that the economy is better off switching to clean energy."

A new report on climate change suggests that it has contributed to drought as rainy weather conditions increase the risk of water scarcity for agriculture and urban needs.

The Climate Council's report, released on Tuesday, found that the flow of water in the Murray-Darling basin over the last 20 years has dropped by 41 percent, with fears that it will continue to decline.

The catchment area produces more than a third of Australian food.

Since March 2015, Federal Climate Policies and Emissions Growth Every quarter Australia lags behind the rest of the world in terms of climate change, Tuesday's Tuesday, the Kyiv-based climate council Leslie Hugs told reporters in Sydney.
