Letter to the Editor - Renewable energy targets and subsidies must go
From Leon Ashby - Spokesman for the NO CARBON TAX Climate Sceptics
Since IPCC chairman Pauchari and Climate Sceptic Lord Monckton agree the planet has not warmed for 17 years, I believe its time to stop subsidising renewable energy and to scrap Australia`s Renewable Energy Targets (RETS)
The world has 3000 billion tons of known coal reserves to supply humanity for 1000 years.
Tulane University oil expert David Hynes has said Greece has new-found gas and oil reserves.
The USA is again the world largest oil producer with new technologies recovering oil and gas from its large reserves as well as Australia having huge reserves that new technologies can harvest.
While developing renewable energy technology is good, do we need to subsidise it?
Solar company Solyndra went bust and Suntech, the world’s highest-selling producer of solar panels, is struggling to pay a $541 million bill. Both expected a high renewable energy demand, but it fizzled.
It appears the realisation that Global warming is not man made is becoming wider recognised as the dire predictions of planet roasting and planet drowning do not occur.
Voters dislike higher powers bills with unnecessary renewable energy components in them.
I think its time the 20% renewable energy targets and associated subsidies went in the bin.
