One major contributing factor to the public disapproval of Tony Abbott is his many environmental failures within Australia. His policies in the course of his tenure as Prime Minister have continually failed to address the nation’s carbon footprint, which is of particular concern given the global move towards emission reduction and renewable energy technology.
Instead of creating policy that aligns with the economic and environmental benefits of the nation, Abbott has actively treated the environment as an enemy. Abbott’s lack of action on climate change, and resistance to renewable energy power sources have received many critics from governments around the globe.
As proof of that statement, here are 11 significant environmental failures of the Abbott-led Australian government.
Repealing the carbon price
Cutting back and freezing or even eliminating the RET
Abolishing the Climate Commission
Attempting to abolish the Clean Energy Finance Corporation and the Renewable Energy Agency
Keeping the subsidies of fossil fuels
Destroying the Great Barrier Reef’
Cancelling the Tasmanian forest deal and trying to de-list the Tasmanian World Heritage Forest
Placing the Marine National Reserve under review
Trying to give environmental powers to individual states
Not providing operating funds to the environmental defenders office
Creating an underpaid and careless “green army”
