Letter to The Editor - Testing Green Energy
Let’s carry out a real energy experiment in Australia. Insist that Victoria and South Australia become “zero emission states” with all electricity generated by wind, solar or hydro and backed up by giant batteries. Mandate electric cars and levy a climate tax on all emissions from cattle and petrol/diesel engines. Let Qld choose freely from unsubsidised coal, gas or green power with no climate taxes. Leave their cows, cars, and trucks alone. Stop all interstate transfer of electricity into test areas. Let’s see what happens to electricity reliability and prices, industrial activity, jobs and interstate migration of climate refugees.
