Malcolm Turnbull will stand by his word to invest in climate change in the next Federal Budget according to online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.
The bookie is taking bets that funding for the Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF) will increase at $1.62 and that the Climate Change Authority will continue to be funded, with $4,000,000 to $8,000,000 AUD the $2.20 favoured amount.
The Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) and the Clean Energy Finance Corporation are also tipped to survive extinction, both priced at $1.20.
“Malcolm Turnbull was more like Captain Planet making his pledges in Paris and we’re tipping the next budget will reflect his dedication to combat climate change,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
