With the final seats of the senate still up in the air, we already know that several anti-climate change senators have lost their seats.  These senators have been so far replaced with the independent parties, Pauline Hanson’s One Nation, the Nick Xenophon Team and Derryn Hinch’s Justice Party. Jacqui Lambie may pick up an extra seat.  All these senators have been vocal about their views on climate change.  So, what does the introduction of these senators mean for Climate change policy in Australia going forward?
