I’ve noticed lately that Turnbull loves to use the word ‘agile’. This time, he has used the word to describe his intended approach to climate change policy:
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has vowed to take an agile approach to climate change policy.
But he defended the Abbott government’s carbon dioxide emissions reduction target of 26-28 per cent on 2005 levels by 2030, telling ABC radio on Thursday it had ‘struck the right spot’.
The mechanism would be reviewed in 2017 and if elements were working then they could be ‘tweaked or amended‘.
Turnbull’s attempt to please everyone on this issue is transparent and dangerous (for both him and us). He’s basically trying to say ‘To all the conservatives, the Abbott climate change policies are great. To all the Lefties, don’t worry, I intend to change them soon’.
Mother Nature must be wetting herself laughing at the human being who thinks he can take an ‘agile’ approach to changing the climate.
PS: I’m going to make the faithful assumption that the word ‘not’ is missing from the bold section in the quote above (goodness help us all here if I’m wrong). Watching SBS and Sky both include this error reminds me of the kid in school who copies another kid’s homework and still puts the other kid’s name on their own version.
