Bob Brown has claimed Kevin Rudd’s reluctance to negotiate with the Greens was the real reason an emissions trading scheme did not pass parliament in 2009 and is accusing Anthony Albanese of making the same mistake.
The Greens founder defended his decision to veto the passage of the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme as Adam Bandt and independent MPs on Thursday demanded changes to the Prime Minister’s climate change bill after receiving briefings from the office of Energy Minister Chris Bowen.
Mr Brown condemned the Australian Conservation Foundation and Greenpeace for backing a bill to enshrine Labor’s 43 per cent target in law.
