7:36 am
a very great place to live. i get to have own of you. i want to go back guess to those to lead a prime minister, candidates having a look at what their mandates are, what they are saying that they're campaigning on. can you very quickly gather international audience up to speed casual and for what the current prime minister, what he's like, what he stands for? and then what his challenge at the opposition leader also stands for. what is the choice? what are the options that australians will have this weekend? or scott morrison became prime minister in 2018 for a kind of palace, coo and then in 2019 he won this very unexpected, unusable election. now he represents the sort of center right ruling liberal and national potty coalition. and despite being a prime minister through the cove, it is through a pandemic which australia has compared to much of the rest of the world where the things pretty well. he's actually really guide
7:37 am
a struggle to be re elected on saturday. he's trialing and all the major pauls. and part of that is because his personal approach is really last favor. among many voters, people thought that he was slow to act on crises like the bush fires slow to water . enough vaccines and people find his personal approach. really kind of, you know, they grinds in the wrong way. he's up against anthony albanese laid the sort of sin to left to strive and labour potty. he's been in politics for a very long time and he thinks through these kind of careful, measured non threatening approach through focusing on problems with morrison's character. he's done enough to win a mandate and when government on saturday night oh okay. both both addiction interview guy. i'm not like able to go to the price for by the key issues that they make their, their, to me. i focusing on, i'm not at all surprised because the liberal party that forte has been in economic
7:38 am
management. they, they know that they're good economic managers. so that's the one. those are the issues that they put to there or, and then you've got the labor party on the other side that nicely focuses on, you know, social issues like health care, child care, gender equity. so if you know what the parties are trying to assure their strengths of the people in the last election as crucial, or actually sent unmovable election for the labor. the last yeah. any content that many content that they lost because they tried to creep, turn the liberal party for k, trying to talk about taxation at about money policies, which really made the strand deeper, insecure. and the postman wrong in the last, and i just, i wasn't looking anywhere else before saturday. i want to bring in a voice here type that i would love you to build off. so this is things blackwell. and we are strange a little bit early on. what is this election about?
7:39 am
this is what james says. i'm really curious to see what you think the election is about his james festival. so i can focus on 3 issues. i will change cut to living integrity and governance, govern government, liberates carson is happy to receive relation, but focusing on their record on the economy or what do any serious discussion there . and then he says on regarding current 19 and is off the management plan party by have an easy way to capitalize on this. and government perceived lack of integrity and having to return to office after 9 years, you know, position on the election reform government. you had a long time for future plans strategically, right. issues as a 1st person having for government more thankfully engage with most yeah, that's very interesting on what james is picked on. there is that the government is really concerned about macroeconomic policy. and the labor party is really focusing
7:40 am
on the caring economy, whereas he had them on a party send the teal independence, focusing on environmental issues. and even though this a big difference between the macro economic approach of the government and the carrying economy approach of the opposition, they saw many issues that affect people at home, cost of living, cost of education, the problems with health care. and then this massive concern about climate change, and you really wonder how diff, the government has to be and, and if you think about it, the ideological approach in australia, the current government is a small target, the government. so government wants to keep out of people's lives, the prime minister is fond of saying, but he's not resonating is not cutting through. and that's why he's not reaching people on the issues that matter to them at the moment came mentioned a phrase that that could show which is till independence. and that's 2 colors of
7:41 am
politics merging together to make tail tell us small kitchen. so the liberal party, traditionally the right wing, set of main potty in this country, big part of its traditional support bases. very wealthy affluent parts of sydney and melbourne bought increasingly the liberal party is in coalition. it has been in coalition with the national party for a long time. the national party represent regional parts of australia where lots of people have resource jobs and where the mining sector is really strong. people in be in a city who are wealthy kind of post material types are really frustrated with this government, lack of action on climate change. they want the government to do more to cut emissions. that would the national parties influence the liberals aren't going to do it. so you've had the rise vase, independent candidates focused on really 2 issues, more action on climate change, integrity and politics and, and also stuff around gender which again, these parties govern government very teeny at about sort
7:42 am
a combination of those factors is saying these kind of revolts in blue, blood liberal hotline, the wealthiest parts of sydney and melbourne. these independent candidates who oxide their independent, they will run on the sort of same kind of platform, the same color, teal colored taisha. they're really challenging and, and is about, i think, 6 of them who are really pushing the liberal party hot and it makes it very hard for that party to kind of read the natal between satisfying the regions way coal is king and also keeping what i supposed to say dynamic, and those are 3 satisfied things. really kind of a human aaa. i can, i just said fascinating. i guess lucas has begun. i was just going to say that it's a fascinating, shy couple of politics. we're really lucky. you, me saying this way? you essentially have conservative women peeling off to the left of the conservative party and creating a whole new sense of politics, where they're picking up on environment and then making it across potty issue that they're taking it away from being a pod as sandy. she just belonging to the great says, yes, it's fascinating,
7:43 am
it's disruption, right, isn't it negotiation also kind of it also reflects the people on the ground as well because you have people who are increasingly becoming more and more doesn't particularly because they are dissatisfied with the performance of boy, the major parties not only their selection but true, but maybe about 2 decades, not right. and that has been a decline in trust in politicians and it's just not the liberal party, but like crosstrek. this is across all the politicians across the ideological scale . so the, these independents are really, as i like to say, i'm really giving us a protest alternative that most a young people, according to my research. like, you know, i'm going be like, they're rude by to you independent beef. young women educated women who are, you know, taking action on climate change because that's been massively been inaction. wally
7:44 am
in this country. hey michelle, this headline with me because it's a really good question. a strain election. why was climate change on the agenda? that's the headline. where is it? a strains, care about climate change? because they have seen it. it's not like some distant phenomenon happening somewhere else is on your dose that actually in houses. so where is it on the agenda? what are those of the big politicians? what the independence, why am i not talking about it? because the terrified, yeah, well, oh, okay. and that changed climate change is some really affecting people in a very visceral why that is that people now are experiencing bush fires in floods and rising temperatures in the interior. and it's really becoming very significant issue that's talked around the kitchen table a bat and a for politicians. i just want to keep the eye on the macro image,
7:45 am
a macroeconomic bowl. and, and yes, so the more that talk about climate change, the more they have to talk about moving away from fossil fuels. and i think that's an uncomfortable conversation in australia and, and i will say, oh oh, oh, sure. so you go faster and then i don't if i you guys 2nd. so yeah, i think climate has been such a disfiguring force in australian politics because we are on the call face. but we also have a lot of call resource sector is very strong in employees. it keeps people comfortable blue collar jobs, but. ready also is very politically powerful and has been, you know, we talk about australia, people might know about how we've had many prime ministers, a constant churn. and so many of those churns what kind of climate related, if you kind of step back and look at what happened and equally the unusable election, there were one of the big reasons that label last was because there was seen as far
7:46 am
too threatening and aggressive on climate to many people in sort of regional communities where coal had been the black backbone of the community and right now. so for both major parties that's weighing on the oppositions. mine and the government now has these kind of awkward tightrope between the cities where it's facing this teal revolt and a bush where, you know, you've still got coal. so really awkward for both major parties. that's why the government's sort of approach to net 0, which they did accept the late last year was very much a kind of plan without any kind of detail or binding commitment. it was sort of a, if i come to you a to my now i know you want to add, i want to go to count melvin ria. he's and most of environment, student university of melbourne. this is what she taught us a few hours ago. i'm just interested on her child and in you where you want to take us next because she mentions this was a challenge to australia has it really does need to have climate change. policy
7:47 am
here is quite australian has some of the dirtiest electricity in the world where the majority still comes from brown and black coal fired ponds. so step one is going to be transitioning these 2 renewables. beyond this, we are the 3rd largest fossil fuel export and world's largest emissions explorer. because what we are exporting to our neighbors is the dirtiest form of fossil fuels being coal. really the only 2 groups that are pledging to their fair share of emissions reductions are greens and teal independence. so i'm hoping we see a lot of winds for them this weekend. oh, she came lady out into the go ahead. i completely, you know, resonate with k k to mention that, you know, is a barrier at the moment and really makes you wonder about, you know, 90 percent of the electorate things climate change is an important issue. the
7:48 am
selection then why if this is not signaling to the major parties or politicians and power in the answer traditions, but the 1st few companies on the lobby around them. they have a lot of power, right? and a lot of money flowing from these companies into, into politics now and to go to major parties where there's a documentary that i like to site. it's called a big deal that has been filmed by the a, b, c. and it really shows how, how much money just north is lived on the table for boy. these patties and that high tail independence, talking normally about climate change, but also about integrity in politics and accountability. it felt an important issue . and it's also a part and parcel of the daddy affair that is going on in the style. yeah, really. so i think the disc dependency between what people want and what is being delivered or not delivered in this case really isn't because all of the amount of
7:49 am
power and money that flow strong. and i think these big companies. yeah, no, no political heidi from 0 paint. what's on your mind? go ahead. i'm thinking that tom, like the chill independence and the grains. what they want to do, it's, i want to whine back that power and partly by cutting political political donations to political parties from the fossil fuel industry. but also the grains want to ban call and gas and, and transition foster. and the tales want to use funding for that from 2 to fund renewable energy type funding away from subsidizing call. so this a lot of talk about moving forward. and this also a lot of moving forward, trying to sort of voting with their faden, the huge uptake of renewable energy and renewable energy is something that could be a, a massive economic boost for us to help us when we have the bottom full out of the
7:50 am
coal industry, which is inevitably going to happen, i think by 2030 the grains want to get rid of call and yeah, that's not that far away. yeah. kitchen, i want to revisit something that you said was under your voice about why aren't politicians in this election talking about climate change? remember the way that he said, yes, i said they were terrified, and that is because of, well, in labor's case of the backlash, they called from the community at the 2019 election when they did have a more ambitious target. and similarly for the current government as well, when they moved to next year, i last year, it was a really tortured process. and, and you know, it's your target, as we've said, nothing burger. but it was so hard to get the nationals who rank their party, the regional states, though the politicians representing them on board. so really, really awkward for both major parties. i think i would rather claim that i ended.
7:51 am
the climate was sweeping on the rug to look about other things that are a lot more convenient for them. i want to do that. he gets a compare and contrast. so this is may 16th. this is prime minister spot morrison, talking about what might happen if independence doing really well this week hadn't . let's have a listen. let's have a look. you can address climate change and invest in the technology you need to do with climate change. unless you have a strong economy. you can invest in mental health support or dealing with the issues involving violence against women and put 2 and a half $1000000000.00 into those programs, or developed advanced manufacturing or ensure that the pharmaceutical benefits scheme can have 2900 new or amended listings on it, you can't do that without a strong economy, then you can never take that for granted. and that's the point on my commerce suits . do not take our strong economy for granted, and please do not give us a parliament. that would be one of the chaos that would only weaken australia and
7:52 am
make it harder for stratagems. guess he can't do climate change unless you have a strong economy. it's not possible laughing why? i'm laughing because he can't have it both wise. he's actually tackling that. he's a, he's a manager of the strong economy, and yet he's not acting on women's issues and he's not acting on climate change. so i think people are saying, well, if not now, then when you're saying we have a strong economy. but you saying we don't have enough money to give people a rise in in their wages. so yeah, so you can't have it both ways. i think you make money out of transitioning your industrial base when you're industrial base is filing. whereas what's happening with this government is it keeps subsidizing a tanking fossil fuel industry because at the moment it's economically a good prospect. but it is a declining prospect and we will have stranded assets to thank the prime minister for and will also have a carbon border adjustment levies against us. why are the countries who say, well,
7:53 am
these products have been produced with fossil fuels? so therefore we're going to tax them heavily. this is what are the countries talking about doing? yeah, so that's an economic cost. i am just been in opposition leader antony alban. easy . and this was a may the 1st and this is what he's like. this is what i am campaigning for. actually, he does mention climate change. i have a look mike, no mistake. climate change is here. now, our region is changing now. the jobs in skills and infrastructure that will grow our economy unaided. now, there is a crisis in aged care right now. families need lasting help with rock, with rising cost. right now astronomy, it does not have 3 more years to waste into our there's a whole agenda that of oceans. he does say climate change 1st though,
7:54 am
is he still saying climate change fast? is that what's gonna maybe get him to be prime minister of australia? well maybe he started with climate change in that speech, but all throughout his campaign, definitely not like i, i definitely didn't see enough weight putting into climate change by both major parties. and i feel like this word is being thrown around like a bicycle that it's, it's like, ok, i'm just going to capture the writers. you care about climate change. but you know, some people are quite politically sophisticated. yeah. and, and they understand that ok, you know, kind of change has been identified as an issue or such a long time. and finally, i've been in the dying days of the 46 caller and you are interested in it because you wonder when my elections, right? so it really i think people are so frustrated by inaction and going back to really and let me morrison into thought, let me just push on because i have a few minutes and i promise that our audience online to talk to you as well, to do,
7:55 am
excuse me for interrupting you, but it's where i wouldn't. davin says, the lack of climate action has been having an impact on apathy, neighbors, dominate australian, as well as the environment here in australia. kate, you wanna just respond to this very quickly. if i move on to the next route, you might absolutely, it's really sad relations. i mean, we have had a government that's actually laughed about the fact that you might have rossi, sea levels in the pacific. so i think that a change of government would lay to an automatic in improvement in those relations . absolutely. all right to so i's is watching right now. thank you. so right for being part of the program. so what ice voted via postal vote. i choose any one, but the 2 parties let the hung parliament be decided by the best put emphasis, lease of evils, tentative people in the ha busy to expertise. they've rainbow. what's going to have a really well, i'll tell you
7:56 am
a little bit about my research over the past elections. well for the major and also women female writers, the young voters are looking into cleans and heels up. so there is a sentiment on the ground that you are going to make. the parties have had failed us, or we should look for an alternative. and this is where really the teal independent being that they will be able to make it. and i want to play a game that we are a preferential learning and we are a major major to them. it has been fairly difficult for the teal independence to make it. but really, i feel like it allows because grading is compulsory. it really allows people to have an alternative and have their voices vibrating quality deals, and i won't bring in an alternative voice. miss voice is the voice of barry, who cares about climate change, but not in a way that we've been talking about. this is the voice that supports the idea of
7:57 am
actually actually let me tell, get back to tell you what he thinks here is. what is the climate change election in the sense that both of the governments do the most initiatives to cycle reduce carbon? i think it's a climate change which in, in that i want to vote for the government. so it's going to do the least because closing cold for pals, dust reasons is going to cost jobs. it's going to mean we lose weight will have more blackouts. and the cost of living will go up and alternative voice in our conversation about climate change policy and the upcoming election in australia. and we just go briefly here to my laptop to remind you how we started this conversation. how much do australian voters care about climate change? in a sentence in a work case? sure. how much do they get a little into how much they care a lot. and kate, well,
7:58 am
they rank it typically. and the top 4 issues at the moment in the policy. so that tells you quite a bit. right, thank you for your comments on you, chip. really appreciate them. hate him to far encased shelf. thank you. part of the string today. i will keep following the a string. elections miss me kind of out and sarah, that's the rat for today. phoenix taken, ah, ah, intelligent social and playful. this vulnerable species have been caught in the wild, sold online and smuggled illegally by criminal syndicates from southeast asia. one of the main markets is japan. in recent years, a new phenomenon has been sweeping through this concrete jungle animal cafe,
