The Climate Election that Wasn't

This year's Australian Federal Elections turned out to be one of the biggest upsets in recent history, with incumbent Scott Morrison's conservative Liberal Party staying in power. Our reporter, Kristi Cheng, investigates how this came to be, and what it might mean for Australia's climate policies.
