MAR­KET GAMES

Comment News (Armadale) - - Opinion -

ONE truth should now be patently clear – coal is not the cause of our en­ergy prob­lems and non-dis­patch­able re­new­ables are not the so­lu­tion.

And when fringe-dwelling politi­cians, des­per­ate for their one day in the sun, al­low green econ­o­mists to play mar­ket games with the im­mutable physics of es­sen­tial ser­vices, the vot­ing pub­lic will in­evitably have their days of dark­ness.

As is the case in any emo­tively charged is­sue of prac­ti­cal con­se­quence, lead­ers will be dis­abled from im­ple­ment­ing an ef­fec­tive so­lu­tion to the prob­lem un­til they have mus­tered the po­lit­i­cal courage to iden­tify, and deal with, its root cause. MARK DYER, Rockingham
