@harrym I'm surprised Labor moved as far as they did. I'm not remotely satisfied with the legislation as it stands, but it's better legislation than we currently have.

My disappointment is aimed at people who didn't vote to the left of Labor, not with how the Greens have acted.

@LovesTha we can’t accept such pissweak climate action. It’s not close to enough according to the experts. All this does is distract people from the problem by making them think its been solved in my view.

@harrym I doubt Labor would trigger a double dissolution election over it. So the realistic actions the Greens could take was modify it as much as they could or do nothing for 3 years.

No action was better?

@LovesTha the Greens are their own party and not required to capitulate to Labor, It’s Labors role to negotiate to pass their legislation, not the role of minor parties to rubber stamp bad legislation.

Labor was clear they could do what they wanted without legislation, so it’s not a matter of a little vs nothing, It’s a matter of using the power you’re given to make positive change, and in my view this isn’t better than fighting for amendments and then voting against it.

Without real action, trying to keep business as usual, the legislation doesn’t seem like its worth lie that they are telling people that enough is being done, its not even close.

@harrym The greens are very clear that this isn't enough.

@LovesTha all talk and no action is what I associate with Labor, not the Greens.

@harrym balance of power in the Senate is much different to being in government.

@LovesTha sure, what does that have to do with what’s happened though?
