Labor dissenter demands ‘end to the climate war’ as new battle erupts
Centre-right Labor MP Joel Fitzgibbon is fighting back against his party’s latest climate policy proposal.
The Labor Party have set a mid-term emissions reduction target, in addition to their net zero by 2050 policy.

“I want an end to the climate war – it neither serves our national interest … or indeed our environment well.”
