Climate Depot’s Marc Morano called the Australian outcome “a warning shot to Democrats hell-bent on promoting climate fears and the Green New Deal.”
“Voters have a limited appetite for that kind of green drivel and pollsters have an even harder time figuring out these surprise trends that produce shock election results,” he said. “France and Canada have suffered similar voter climate surprises. In the 2020 race, it may be President Trump who will be holding the climate trump card.”
Australian environmentalists vowed to regroup, taking heart over polls showing that most voters wanted to see action on global warming and blaming the loss in part on the “myth” that climate-change policies would kill jobs.
