Economy at stake
I REFER to the letter submitted by Peter Leith (TDN 21/11/18) regarding the CO2 produced annually in Australia.
His claims of a production two-and-a-half times that of each Chinese and each Indian is unbelievable and I am most interested in his statistics to support this.
Statistics presented by qualified scientists on Sky News show that the Australian contribution to world emissions is less than 0.1 per cent, and that our commitment to the Paris Agreement will therefore make no difference to the reduction globally.
However, what does matter is the effect of the pursuit of renewable energy targets on the Australian economy.
It involves billions of dollars to implement successfully and involves concessions to a minority, ignoring the fact that coal-fired energy is still necessary to support the grid system with base load power and is the cheaper alternative.
Without cheaper energy we will lose our agriculture and small business which constitutes the backbone of the Australian economy and we will rely on imports.
Already this is happening so hopefully the Federal Government will decide that people and jobs matter here, rather than contributing millions of dollars to the futile Paris Agreement to be channelled to third world countries.
If our economy is not protected and ceases to flourish then Australia and it’s emissions fade into insignificance.

The 700 proposed staff will continue to enjoy their leisure time at their own location – wherever they reside in Tweed.
The real threat to Kingscliff is the 4500 homes and 10,000 people proposed for Kings Forest. With only about 9000 in Kingscliff, the movement of that number from Kings Forest will be an incursion.
Imagine on a hot summer’s weekend day, and people want to go to their local beach.
That may result in up to 10,000 people who will want to invade Kingscliff beach.
