After the Coalition’s failure, there is no higher duty than being Australia’s environment minister | Amelia Young | The Guardian

Tanya Plibersek with governor general David Hurley being sworn in as environment minister

An Australian environment minister carries this responsibility in a way that environment ministers from other countries don’t: Australia as the long-isolated island ark, has flora and fauna like nothing else on the globe.

So when political commentators say that Tanya Plibersek has been “demoted” to the role of Australian environment minister, I wonder what higher responsibility a government minister in 2022 could possibly carry.
