Government coal bullies slowing renewables transition: Bandt

02/09/19

Greens energy spokesperson, Adam Bandt, responded to the announcement that AGL will submit to government pressure and keep Liddell power station open longer, saying the decision would make global warming worse. 

"The coal bullies in the governent are slowing down the transition to renewables," said Mr Bandt. 

"We're in record drought, the Arctic is burning and we should be phasing out coal, not forcing it to stay open longer."
