With the nomination of new members of the Australian House of Representatives, Christopher Eyles Guy Bowen has earned himself the federal position of the Minister for Climate Change and Energy in the 2022 federal election.
He is a member of the Australian Labor Party and was first elected to parliament at the 2004 federal election. Becoming the minister in the energy portfolio, Mr Bowen is succeeding over the previous minister Angus Taylor.
In a Facebook post, he exclaimed, “Thrilled to be appointed the Minister for Climate Change and Energy. The world’s climate emergency is Australia’s job opportunity. Let’s go.”
A Bit About Chris Bowen
Born on 17 January 1973 in Sydney, Australia, Bowen is a member of the Australian Labor Party. He’s hard working, determined, and strong candidate.
He’s A Versatile Man With Good Knowledge
Minister Chris Bowen has served his party and has been involved at various levels of the Australian Government since 1994. After serving as Mayor of the LGA, he progressed to the House of Representatives in 2004 and later joined Kevin Rudd’s shadow ministry in 2006.
Upon the victory of the Labor Party in 2007, Chris served as a minister in different portfolios, but none of them was related to his current energy portfolio.
In this Anthony Albanese government, he has successfully become a Federal Minister for Climate Change and Energy. Mr Bowen is the Federal Member for McMahon.
Chris Likes Renewable Energy & Climate Change
Mr Bowen believes that humans are responsible for messing up the environment and an efficient climate change policy can bring a signature reform for the new government.
In the lead up to the Federal Election, he promised a community battery to a town or suburb every other day.
Chris Bowen owns an electric vehicle- a Tesla Model 3 he bought in February this year. We hope he’ll introduce legislation aiming at slashing import tariffs and fringe benefits tax on EVs.
