Abbott is blindsiding mainstream media on green energy; Renewables hits 2020 target in SA; RET cut will leave renewables ‘as good as dead’; Fossil fuel divestment a $5tn challenge; Oz top solar electorates also most conservative; China eyes $16bn EV charging fun; Water security another good reason to shift to renewables; Why tariff design is critical for utilities; Verizon to be largest solar producing communication company; Coal found guilty in case of energy generation vs birds; and Stopgap carbon policies not perfect but better than nothing.
Fairfax’s media flagship has called on Tony Abbott to protect the Renewable Energy Target, and then recommended a raft of policies to do exactly the opposite. It’s another example of why the Abbott government’s destruction of a $20 billion industry is and will not be questioned in mainstream media.
