The other major parties, including the Greens and the Liberal Party, are in the middle of the pack with 21 per cent each.
“The Liberal Party has really moved up the polls in the last few weeks,” Labor MP Steve Ciobo said.
Mr Ciobo says the ALP and Greens are the two parties that have been most open and transparent about the country’s climate policy. “
People feel they’re being listened to, they’re listened to and that they can trust that their government will do what is best for them.”
Mr Ciobo says the ALP and Greens are the two parties that have been most open and transparent about the country’s climate policy.
“When it comes to the Greens, there’s been a very clear commitment, a very real commitment that they are going to have an emissions reduction program, and the Greens have also been very transparent about that,” he said.
Mr Ciobbos party’s position on the climate change issue has been clear for a long time, with former environment minister Greg Hunt, now deputy leader, saying in 2016 that “we are not climate change deniers”.
Mr Ciobos has previously been critical of the Labor Party’s handling of climate change.
In December, Mr Ciobos predecessor as environment minister, Scott Morrison, accused the Labor government of being too cautious in its approach on climate change and said it had not made enough progress in the past two years.
Mr Abbott’s government has made significant progress on climate action, with the Labor party agreeing to commit to reducing greenhouse gas emissions from the economy by 50 per cent by 2030.
In November, the Prime Minister announced the construction of a $2 billion national carbon trading scheme.
The plan is set to be rolled out over a period of six years, with a cap on emissions from businesses, industries and households.
The scheme is expected to increase the amount of carbon emitted by businesses in Australia by more than 10 per cent.
