In response to Barnaby Joyce MP

9 March, 2020

Statement from Zali Steggall MP:

"Climate change is real and is going to cost everyone a lot more if we continue to ignore the problem and fail to properly assess and mitigate the risks ahead.

What Barnaby Joyce overlooks is that New England and regional Australia will be amongst the worst affected by climate change impacts. This is everyone’s responsibility.

Rather than doing strange social media posts or criticising me, he should be focused on building consensus for real solutions to help his community.

We all have a responsibility to keep Australia safe and prosperous, now and in the future. As a parent, that is my ambition and motivation. What’s yours?

If you want a safer future, let Mr Joyce know at".
