Who understands climate science and who doesn't? Which party is going to urgently address climate change? Which party will cut emissions in a meaningful way?  Which party has a vision for a transitioning economy?  Which party won't be hamstrung by donors in the quest to implement the changes to a renewable economy? Which party is going to release water back into a sick Murray Darling system, and what about our local environment, we've just had a massive fish kill at Wallagoot Lake on the Far South Coast, what is being done about that? How will the parties stop the decline in Australia's terrible extinction rate and deforestation?
