Powerful work by teens
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
