Daring to Doubt: Climate Change Policies Are the Threat, Not Climate Change Reality

January 3, 2018
By Tony Abbott

The 2017 Annual Lecture to the Global Warming Policy Foundation, London, October 9, 2017

This is a reprint of a speech made by the Honourable Tony Abbott MP, the former Prime Minister of Australia, to the Global Warming Policy Foundation in London on October 9, 2017.

In it, Abbott talks about Australia's history of dealing with the climate change issue, the harm doomsday predictions and the policies based on them have done to the continent's inhabitants, and his government's efforts to fix the problems caused by these policies. He calls for a return of rational inquiry into the issue, as well as for policies that put Australians' jobs and standard of living first.
