Abstract

The background to, campaign preceding, and results of the Australian general election of 2013 are discussed, as are the likely consequences of the election of a Liberal-National coalition government. The focus is upon the contest over the Labor government's Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme, and the opposition's characterisation of it as a 'carbon tax'. Other environmental policies and the fate of the Australian Greens are also discussed.
