Australia's new prime minister, Anthony Albanese, has vowed to take the nation in a new direction, with a big shift in climate policy. He also believes Australia could become a renewable energy superpower.


This BBC article makes the following points:
  • Climate change was a key concern for voters, after three years of record-breaking bushfire and flood events.
  • The new Australian prime minister has vowed to ‘end the climate wars’.
  • If the election resulted in a hung parliament, Greens and independents—who had been campaigning for radical climate change action—could wield great influence in framing the new government's policies on the issue.
Mr Albanese promised to adopt more ambitious emissions targets but has so far refused calls to phase out coal use, or to block the opening of new coal mines.
