Turnbull accuses Abbott of talking 'bullsh*t'
Former Liberal leader Malcolm Turnbull is obviously unimpressed with Tony Abbott's emissions reduction plan:
Writing in his blog today Mr Turnbull says emissions cannot be cut without a cost.
"To replace dirty coal fired power stations with cleaner gas fired ones, or renewables like wind let alone nuclear power or even coal fired power with carbon capture and storage is all going to cost money," he says.
"So any suggestion that you can dramatically cut emissions without any cost is, to use a favourite term of Mr Abbott, 'bullshit.' Moreover he knows it."
Mr Turnbull goes on to accuse those who have backed Mr Abbott's leadership as climate change sceptics.
So much for party unity. Anyway, it's not like politicians talking bullshit is anything new.
