Australia USED to have some of the cheapest energy in the world but no longer due to trying to save the planet from climate change! Australia can sell coal to China, India and Japan BUT will not use it in Australia because we feel better about ourselves when we are spending lots more for energy while saving the planet! What a joke!
Even the supposedly thought to be ‘conservatives’ have sold the country down the climate scam hole from which there will soon be no return! In spite of being a supposed free democracy all we seem to get at elections are these people who talk jobs and low energy prices but at the same time have swallowed the climate change Kool Aid and seem bound and determined to continue the Green New deal without being in the Greens Party! In other words they lie at election time. Now, ‘Energy Minister Angus Taylor says Australia’s “great challenge” is to bring down and contain energy prices and at the same time bring down emissions. Mr Taylor and Prime Minister Scott Morrison are in Tasmania to formally sign an agreement making the state the battery of the nation. Under the plan $94 million will be invested to build a second power interconnector to Victoria. “That’s exactly what this project is doing. We’re seeing dramatic investment right now across Australia in solar and wind. $9 billion last year,” Mr Taylor said. “And that’s in keeping with dramatic reductions we’re seeing in emissions. The challenge of that is to make sure we have firm, reliable power and we contain prices when the wind doesn’t blow and the sun doesn’t shine. That’s exactly what hydro projects can do. “When the wind doesn’t blow and the sun doesn’t shine, you need a solution and Tasmania has part of that solution which is very exciting for all of us here.”’https://www.skynews.com.au/details/_6216267512001?utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Daily%20Sky%20News%20Australia%20%20Newsletter&utm_content=Daily%20Sky%20News%20Australia%20%20Newsletter+CID_7134b2b086947a3f89e1d037be7b10ad&utm_source=Daily%20newsletter&utm_term=Australias%20great%20challenge%20is%20to%20bring%20down%20energy%20prices%20emissions
