Malcolm Turnbull's turnaround on renewable energy, from pro-carbon price to clean coal


What a stunning turnaround. The man who lost the leadership by fighting to introduce a carbon price is now railing against renewable energy.

In 2010, Malcolm Turnbull believed that Australia needed to move to a "a situation where all or almost all of our energy comes from zero or very near zero-emission sources" to avoid the risks, laid out in the science, of catastrophic climate change.

Now politicians who advocate positions that Mr Turnbull once held firmly are, he says, "drunk on left ideology on energy" and threatening peoples' livelihoods.
