Australia’s politicians protect the coal industry, not the Australian people

Politicians protecting coal industry at our expense , stop wasting precious time and money on protecting this un-investable industry. more http://www.examiner.com.au/story/4736285/politicians-protecting-coal-industry-at-our-expense/?cs=97  Andrew Bray, 18 June 17 The level of ‘stupid’ engulfing Canberra has hit new heights. No matter what problem with energy policy is raised, some politicians instantly shout “coal!”

Businesses and householders across the country are screaming at the government for relief from spiraling electricity bills. A broad and unlikely coalition of bodies representing industry, energy users, farmers and social services have all come together to call for policy certainty around a low emissions electricity grid.

But the government is ignoring their pleas and are instead obsessed with whether the coal industry is being properly looked after.

Coal doesn’t stack up economically or environmentally, so it’s time to stop wasting precious time and money on protecting this un-investable industry.
