Don’t believe the crocodile tears of the coal industry, nor anyone else with a vested interest in status quo. These dinosaurs have had a cruisy, subsidised ride for far too long and are responsible for many toxic and deleterious side-effects. They should be forced to compete on fair terms with the cleaner alternatives that are comparatively starved of government assistance. As Dr Karl says, “When was the last time you saw a coal plant having a lamington drive?”.
Our economy is flexible, and society will benefit as we transition away from coal, and towards renewables.
