Letter: Leadership needed in climate change battle

Full marks to Broelmann for Wednesday’s cartoon depicting a mother, who bears an uncanny resemblance to the (latest) Federal Environment Minister, pushing her coal baby against a flashing red light, and the caption, “No, I haven’t read the road rules and, if I had, they’d be wrong!”

It beggars belief that a politician, whose sole environmental expertise is that she used to be a lawyer who worked for the mining industry, should declare that the considered report of 91 world climate experts (which she admits to not yet having read) is wrong!

I despair for my descendants.
