I choose Rocky over Paris
HERE’S why getting out of the Paris Agreement matters.
On Monday, the North Rockhampton Bowls Club shut its doors, the latest victims of the great climate change con.
As reported in its local paper, the club couldn’t afford AGL’s power costs to stay open. Since 2012, when the club’s annual bill was $67,793, electricity costs have almost doubled. Last year, it paid a whopping $100, 267 and this year it’s estimated to be about $130,000.
Last year, the club was forced to lay off two permanent employees to try to cut costs and this week another seven workers lost their jobs as it closed.
We say we care about older Australians and we know keeping active and socially connected is a key part of ageing well, so what do we expect the 600 or so members to do now?
This isn’t just in Queensland — it is happening right across the country as charities and not-for-profits, as well as small businesses, can no longer cope with the cost of power.
