Labor: Coal is not clean
Why is this important?
The Turnbull government, hounded by Tony Abbott and the coal industry, killed off the Chief Scientist's plan for a Clean Energy Target and instead, is trying to keep dirty and ageing coal fired power stations open for longer. Now, we've got the 'National Energy Guarantee' instead, which will curb renewables and encourage dirty coal to stay in the system longer.
We offered to work with Labor to implement effective climate policy. Instead, Labor wants to work with government on a target that would subsidise coal.
Labor has a choice. It can work with the Greens to stop this crazy commitment to coal, kick out a rotten government in climate denial and then develop an effective energy policy. Or, it can prop up a dying Coalition government with an 'energy guarantee' that keeps coal in the system for longer.
