Green en­ergy eco­nom­ics putting us in the red

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - Letters -

Our fed­eral par­lia­men­tar­i­ans pro­fess to be smart and in­tel­li­gent and yet th­ese peo­ple from both par­ties want ever more re­new­able en­ergy for Aus­tralia.

They have their sig­na­tures on the Paris agree­ment, and yet other coun­tries re­neged on sign­ing to carry on pol­lut­ing the at­mos­phere with many times more than Aus­tralia’s out­put.

The gov­ern­ment has ripped us all off for around $3 bil­lion in the past 10 years (“The $3b green en­ergy rip-off”, 10/8).

How much of that has been chan­neled into re­new­ables rather than coal-fired power, which is the cheap­est?

I hon­estly be­lieve that th­ese politi­cians think they are up there sit­ting next to all the world lead­ers.

Kevin07 in­stilled that feel­ing in the La­bor Party and it has rubbed off on Prime Min­is­ter Mal­colm Turn­bull and oth­ers. Terry Malm, Black­town
