Now don't get me wrong here! Tony Abbot has shown himself to be a good prime Minister. He has kept his known temper under wraps. Whether this will last we don't know yet. Keeping control of information about new boat arrivals will probably not work for much longer. The press have a habit of "getting ahead" of events. Reporters will find out somehow and release the knowledge to everyone.
The greatest problem lies in the area of climate change. Everyone has the latest news and info at hand today. The north and south poles are decreasing in size and that is enough in itself to accept that climate change is caused by human activity. Furthermore, animal species are moving into new regions as oceans warm up.
Though Tony Abbot admits somewhat reluctantly that climate change is due to industrialization, one cannot be sure if he genuinely believes this. He has surrounded himself with climate change skeptics. Many would not accept that a war was going on until they saw a tank come over the hill.
None are so blind than those who will not see. Nothing will change a skeptic. Indeed, the flat earth society still exists despite the weight of science against it. The most skeptical of all in Tony Abbott's inner circle is Maurice Newman, who is paranoid about CSIRO and the Bureau of Meteorology of conspiring with blatant lies to substantiate there "false" claims.
It is okay for Prime Minister Tony Abbott to be pro-business. After all this is expected of a right wing political Party, which the Liberal Party is in Australia. Perhaps Australia shouldn't do anything until other countries act on climate change. This could be the new high moral ground. But chasing a fact as being the cause and vice versa led to the demise of the Labor party. Listening to the majority of voters is important to politicians particularly if they hope to survive elections.
