|Australia's PM Malcolm Turnbull, attempting to |
be green again is a dangerous by necessary risk.
Avoiding it for so long has hastened his popular descent. Avoiding it indefinitely was unthinkable.
All too aware of the sceptical right-wing eyes burning a hole in his back, the Prime Minister had attempted to slow the policy process down, to gather the evidence and build the support within his party for a gentle, non-ideological return to remedial action on climate change.
Action that many within his party room do not believe is needed, and to which some remain implacably opposed.
