Copy: Hon Jane Prentice MP.
a. “We are moving away from coal and that is not a bad thing.”
b. “I accept the science of climate change and recognise that Australia needs to do its part as the globe tackles climate change and emissions reduction.”
c. … “(I) absolutely accept that man is contributing to climate change…”
d. … “if you look at the 12 most emission-intensive power generation facilities in Australia, eight of those have closed over the last five years, all of which were coal. And of course with the Renewable Energy Target, which will see 23.5 per cent of our electricity generation by 2020 coming from renewable sources, you will see renewable energy take the place of coal as an important energy source.”
