Not necessarily. Opinion polls show that the vast majority of Australians think we should do much more to transition to renewables and the polls have done so for well over a decade. And yet for well over a decade the libs, with the least action on the move to renewables, have won office. Every election the libs always offer a tax cut or promise more money in your pocket and thats what people want irrespective of the other policies. The same party then complains that we can't afford to keep all of our social policies because there isn't enough money.I know you didn't vote for the Liberals (conservatives) that are in power in Australia, but apparently the majority did. So I take it that the majority of Australians agree with the Liberals' coal policy.
