I write in exasperation about the budget, specifically that federal government spending on climate change will fall over the next four years, dropping from $2 billion this year to $1.3 billion in 2025-6. Money is being taken from the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) and the Clean Energy Finance Corporation (CEFC) to prop up the so-called gas-led recovery.
