The popular wisdom seems to be that Labor leader Anthony Albanese is hanging back on revealing his climate change ambitions because he is afraid Scott Morrison will immediately frame anything he promises as job destroying and economy wrecking.
This view is only half right.
There is no doubt whatever Mr Albanese comes up with, the Prime Minister won’t hesitate to make those claims.
Furthermore he will surely value add by inventing policies Labor has not embraced or entertained.
Why wouldn’t he? It worked a treat in 2019.
This is where we need a reality check.
Labor did not lose the last election because of its climate policies.
