Kristina Keneally It is still on the "Bill bus", which travels around Australia as a supplement to the basic Labor campaign.
She asked on ABC News Breakfast on the cost of Labor's climate change policy, which Shorten was a question about last night in the leaders debate also raised.
Virginia Tirol: According to what we read from the polls, the opposition leader won the audience vote last night. But if you can not actually end up adding the total cost of your scheme to reduce emissions, you have a bit of trouble in the rest of the company, is not it?
KKWell, Virginia, that we saw last night in the debate was Bill Shorten containing a complete set of strategies that government job cuts will prescribe for Australia.
On climate change, energy, salaries, education, health care, cancer. We came to these elections with a courageous vision of Australia, and with the government, which is a & # 39 is stable, and only focus on the Australian people. that Scott Morrison offer? Nothing but an even greater chaos and division, it cuts. It has a narrow range of things that he could say before he begins to spark section within its own ranks.
VT: Well, I'll pull you back in a narrow range of things … I'll pull you back to my question, Kristina Keneally. I did not ask for a stump speech. I asked a specific question about what the opposition leader struggled to deliver a global and comprehensive piece on to, a policy that is very important for you that reduce emissions. But if you can not give the Australian people that a specific figure, then you have a problem, is not it?
KK: Well, Virginia, right now we have a problem in Australia because we have a government that is not doing anything about climate change. And the cost of inaction is enormous. CSIRO to put this matter to some $ 14,000 on something one & # 39; w, a few hundred billion dollars over the preliminary estimate, if we do not act on climate change. Now that we know that under the government's own simulations, that the economy will continue to grow in both Labor and Coalition policy, when it comes to climate change.
But we also know that the government has no clear set of strategies that they can point to. And what are they going to do to bring emissions. As part of the government coalition, the emissions go on rising energy costs. And last night the prime minister's & # 39; er minister could not identify, in any way, he's going to do to help Australian households to deal with those rising energy prices, as well as help in Australia to shoot it down emissions.
