As in the UK, as reported at the blog by our London correspondent, Richard Miller, the Green ideology has made energy much more expensive in Australia, and it seems that it will take years for electricity prices to go down, meaning, they will never go down to pre-pandemic levels, even in energy-rich Australia. Labor, pursuing the same climate change illusion as the Greens, wants to triple the amount of renewable energy flowing into the grid by 2030, but energy leaders have said that Australia will not be able to build enough renewable energy to replace coal. Alinta chief executive Jeff Dimery has said: “Snowy 2.0 is delayed, VNI West is coming in 2031, three years after Yallourn comes out. The whole transition is not lining up. We are so far off track.”
Off track indeed. Moving away from coal, rather than developing technologies to make coal use cleaner, has been a fatal mistake, that will lead to Australia facing the severe energy crisis of Europe, while communist china is free to build two coal power stations a week.
