Australia’s federal election: Climate change becomes top concern for voters • FRANCE 24 English

FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Australia’s federal election: Climate change becomes top concern for voters • FRANCE 24 English” – below is their description.

Australia is counting down to its next federal election on May 21. The environmental crisis is high on voters’ minds and smaller parties and independents are gaining momentum by riding a wave of disillusionment over the conservative coalition’s lack of climate action. With a hung parliament looking likely, these minor players could force the traditional parties to do more to tackle global warming. Climate change is an increasingly hot-button issue since the country’s devastating bushfires of 2019-20. Our correspondents Richelle Harrison Plesse and Gregory Plesse report.
