Fun fuel op­tions

Maroochy Weekly - - YOUR SAY -

CLI­MATE alarmists are run­ning around like head­less chooks and blam­ing all weather events on fos­sil fu­els. So let’s look at a cou­ple of fun op­tions.

When pay­ing for fuel, con­sumers should be given the choice of fill­ing their ve­hi­cle from ei­ther a “green” pump or a fos­sil fuel pump, priced ac­cord­ingly.

Even more fun, if peo­ple were al­lowed to tick “green en­ergy” or “coal” on their per­sonal power bills, prices ad­justed ac­cord­ingly. That’s true democ­racy for you, where peo­ple vote with their wal­let and not forced to pay for oth­ers’ mis­guided ide­ol­ogy. Then we’d find out how many re­ally care.
