A net-zero target means net-zero development - The Australian

A few weeks before the 2019 election, some publicans were having a beer over dinner in the small town of Clermont. They were discussing a front-page story that day, which reported that some people, in the “Bob Brown, Stop Adani” rally, had called Queenslanders rednecks and Nazis.

They resolved to act. They agreed not to serve the greenies and Kel Appleton started organising a counter rally at his pub, the Grand Hotel.

The rest is history. Bob Brown was seen by Queenslanders as a “Mexican” lecturing us, while hypocritically travelling around in a diesel-fuelled convoy. The Coalition won an unexpected victory on the back of a swing in Queensland three times the national average.
