Prime Minister Scott Morrison should have apologised to Huon Valley residents for making Tasmania’s fires more dangerous with his love affair with coal when he visited today, Greens Senator for Tasmania Nick McKim says.
“I can’t believe he had to gall to show his face in Tasmania after waving around a lump of coal in parliament and telling us it’s good for us,” Senator McKim said.
“Climate science is clear that Tasmania will face more bushfires and they will be more dangerous as a result of burning fossil fuels.”
“Fossil fools like Mr Morrison should stay out of Tasmania until they are prepared to accept the science and adopt a decent climate policy.”
