Audio interview

11 Apr 2016
Description

Climate policy has been divisive and politically brutal territory over the past decade, playing a decisive role in the downfall of Liberal leaders John Howard and Malcolm Turnbull (in 2009), and then Labor's Kevin Rudd and Julia Gillard. A new report by the Grattan Institute says a credible 'convergence' can be built around the Coalition's 'baseline safeguards' mechanism due to start on July 1, and Labor's proposed revamped emissions trading scheme.
