Will the Labor government put climate change at the forefront? | Inside Story

Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Will the Labor government put climate change at the forefront? | Inside Story” – below is their description.

Australia has seen unprecedented bushfires and flooding in recent years. The extreme weather has brought climate change to the top of the voters’ agenda. Greens and climate-focused independents made big gains in Saturday’s election, at the expense of conservatives.

Australia is a major exporter of fossil fuels and the outgoing government often objected to plans to reduce greenhouse emissions.

Neighbouring Pacific Islands say Australia is blocking action, even as their territories are under threat of sinking.

Uneasy ties with the island nations are spilling into security, as concerns mount in Australia about China’s recent deal with the Solomon Islands.

Climate Change is the name commonly given to the notion that the Earth is undergoing a changing climate as a result of human activity, including notable leaders, scientists and naturalists including Sir David Attenborough.
