Stupid power games

The Cairns Post - - VIEWS -

ELEC­TRIC­ITY prices go­ing through the roof, fam­i­lies strug­gling to make ends meet, and now we are be­ing en­cour­aged to all use elec­tric cars, putting more pres­sure on sup­ply.

There is a pos­si­bil­ity of load-shed­ding as de­mand es­ca­lates in sum­mer, we are fast be­com­ing an­other Third World coun­try. What do we do? Fol­low the green mantra and cover the coun­try in wind­mills or build more coal fired power sta­tions. It would be folly to blindly fol­low a lem­ming-like rush to zero emis­sions at the cost of our life­style. Ron McIlveen, Kamerunga
