A script for changing the climate
Interviewer: So Mr Bumby, you have taken great action on climate change. Is that right?
Mr Bumby: Oh yes - without a doubt. Victoria is leading the way, not only in per capita emissions, but also in action. We are still on the move - moving forward and we are the place to be.
Interviewer: What have you done?
Mr Bumby: We have created jobs.
Interviewer: Anything else?
Mr Bumby: Yes - we have drought proofed the state. With our big desal swamp, it never needs to rain again. In fact, we don't want it to rain again.
Interviewer: But it uses lots of power doesn't it? Is that a problem for you?
Mr Bumby: We have taken care of that - we have renewed the power at Hazlewood. All that energy was renewable and we renewed it.
Interviewer: What about other renewable energy - like solar power?
Mr Bumby: Well, it might not rain again - and it might never be sunny again. It's climate change after all.
Interviewer: And transport - what about peak oil and carbon from cars?
Mr Bumby: We have absolutely looked after that - cars will never stop again as they go around on all the links we have linked - from Westlink to Eastlink and all the links we will link them with. Moving forward all the way will mean fewer emissions. No stopping. No stopping us at all.
Interviewer: Thank you.
