Pow­er­ful work by teens

Warwick Daily News - - YOUR SAY -

Let­ter of the Week

CON­GRAT­U­LA­TIONS to the War­wick High School girls who called on David Lit­tleproud and the Aus­tralian gov­ern­ment to do some­thing pos­i­tive about global warm­ing, and se­cure a fu­ture for fu­ture gen­er­a­tions.

Mr Lit­tleproud’s re­sponse was the text­book re­sponse of the Na­tional Party, which gets very con­sid­er­able fund­ing from the fos­sil fuel in­dus­try. But of course, he is quite wrong.

All our en­ergy needs can be met without fos­sil fu­els.

There are very many ways to store en­ergy.

The fos­sil fuel in­dus­try is paid about $5 Bil­lion an­nual sub­sidy by the Aus­tralian tax­pay­ers.

If a part of that sub­sidy were used to fur­ther de­velop al­ter­nate en­ergy pro­duc­tion and stor­age, we might all be pay­ing less for elec­tric­ity.

And cre­at­ing new jobs that don’t de­mand breath­ing coal dust. The re­sponse from the mates of fos­sil fuel is just hys­ter­i­cal.

Well done girls. We need your spirit. You have shown up the oldies who have buried their heads in the sand. Liam O’Dea
