If you believe the pollsters, Australians actually support action on climate change. In June, the Lowy Institute’s survey of 1200 adults found 59 per cent thought “global warming is a serious and pressing problem” about which “we should begin taking steps now even if this involves significant costs”. Almost 84 per cent supported renewables even if this meant government investing more in infrastructure to make the system more reliable. Only 14 per cent thought the government should focus on traditional energy sources like coal and gas. Polling over the weekend in three marginal Liberal seats echoed this result and showed voters supported the Paris Agreement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In Peter Dutton’s seat of Dickson, 51 per cent did not think Australia should withdraw from the agreement, according to a ReachTEL poll published by Fairfax. This rose to 56 per cent in Craig Laundy’s seat of Reid and 62 per cent in Michael Sukkar’s … [Read more...] about The real reasons Australia can’t get its climate change policy right
There is nothing like a trade war to deflect public sentiment and focus anger on other nations and their people. It avoids the real domestic economic issues, allows people to assume that some external force is the cause of their problems, and facilitates politicians procrastinating on what they should be doing to solve their own domestic problems. Where US Vice-President Al Gore spoke of the climate crisis as an “inconvenient truth”, for US President Donald Trump, the presumptions behind his trade war with China are a “convenient untruth.” Trump recently ordered American corporations to withdraw from China and reconsolidate their investments in America. For a president who preaches free market, it seems quite inconsistent that he should be ordering American companies to act against their long-term market decisions for his own short-term political agenda. This is not only unprecedented and anti-market, but also, under American law, totally unconstitutional. … [Read more...] about Trade war a distraction from volatility of Trump policies
Editor's Note: Liu Jianxi is an opinion editor with CGTN Digital. The article reflects the author's opinions, and not necessarily the views of CGTN. From "leaked government files" to the "Uyghur Human Rights Policy Act of 2019," Western media and politicians have been keeping a close eye on China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. By shouting human rights slogans, the West acts as if it is the only savior to rescue the millions of the Uygur people from the "oppression" of the Chinese central government. Interestingly, while Western media outlets never save ink in their Xinjiang coverage, they simultaneously remained silent on CGTN's newly released documentaries that tell of China's anti-terror fight in the region and the role the East Turkistan Islamic Movement (ETIM) played in inciting horrible attacks across China. Ample evidence has confirmed ETIM's inextricable links with Al-Qaeda. Rozi, a leading ETIM member, even acknowledged their meeting with Bin Laden – the mastermind … [Read more...] about The West is accomplice of terrorism by demonizing China’s Xinjiang policy
