Coalition stalls on renewable energy decisions

The Coalition Government doesn’t seem to be making carbon emission reductions a high priority at a time when it’s needed most, writes Giles Parkinson.

IF THE WENTWORTH and Wagga Wagga by-elections were supposed to send a message to Coalition Governments about the need to act on carbon emissions and embrace renewables, it hasn’t worked.

If anything, it seems the Federal Government has lurched even further to the hard Right, deepened its attachment to coal and declared its outright hostility to making any moves to increase its emissions reduction targets. It has vowed to do all it can to stop Labor from doing just that, should it win power in the next federal poll.
