Abbott called out over climate change comments

Energy Minister Josh Frydenburg has called out Tony Abbott’s hypocrisy, criticising his comments on climate change.

In a provocative speech in London this week, Mr Abbott said climate change may not be real and rising temperatures could be helping people.

However, Minister Frydenberg trashed these suggestions saying “climate change is real.”


The Minister, who is developing Australia’s next climate and energy policy, said the government took their advice from scientific experts.

“We’re continuing the work of coalition governments to reduce carbon emissions but to do so in a way that doesn’t compromise the affordability and the reliability of our system,” he said.
