Australias re-elected Prime Minister Scott Morrison once brandished a lump of coal in parliament, crying, This is coal dont be afraid!
His surprise win in what some dubbed the climate election may have stunned the country, but voters should know what comes next in energy policy big coal.
Battered by extended droughts, damaging floods, and more bush fires, Australian voters had been expected to hand a mandate to the Labor Party to pursue its ambitious targets for renewable energy and carbon emissions cuts.
Instead, Saturdays election left them on course to re-elect the Liberal-led center-right coalition headed by Morrison, a devout Pentecostal churchgoer who thanked fellow worshipers for his win at a Sydney church early on Sunday.
The same coalition government last year scrapped a bipartisan national energy plan and dumped then-prime minister Malcolm Turnbull because he was viewed as anti-coal.

The “journalist” appears to be chastising the voters
Vote for us or the world ends. Sounds like scorched earth politics.
What in the f. This article is utter lunacy, giving labor magical abilities to stop drought in Australia like gods.
This is so ridiculous. Who can believe this garbage.
“Vote for us or the world ends. Sounds like scorched earth politics.”
Apparently the voters in Australia are not stupid.
The author’s rhetoric is one of the reasons the left lost. People are sick of the lying hyperbole and even more sick of paying some of the highest electricity prices in the world. Coal will be a baseload supplier for many decades to come and a source of great income in exports.
Unfortunately this sanctimonious cow has called Australia home since the late 90âs
“Australias re-elected Prime Minister Scott Morrison once brandished a lump of coal in parliament, crying, This is coal dont be afraid!
I remember the incident. Extremely funny. Labor heads couldn’t bear to turn their heads to look at the piece of coal. It was like he had held up a cross to the demon infected!
Great theatre in which they were made to look foolish!
Stumbled past a TV program about large machines. These were large vehicles in Australia used to move coal.
To my surprise Australia has massive coal deposits and huge shipping facilities for export over seas.
I`m guessing 10s of thousands of jobs were on the line.
