Losing coal-fired power means ‘an end to cheap, reliable electricity’: Bolt
Andrew Bolt / 3h
Sky News host Andrew Bolt says Australia losing its big coal-fired power stations is a consequence of the Liberals “not having the courage to fight the global warming panic”. “Well, one price we must pay for the Liberals not having the courage to fight the global warming panic – and Labor going much crazier with it – is that Australia is losing its big coal-fired power stations,” Mr Bolt said. “And that means an end to cheap, reliable electricity, steady 24/7.” Mr Bolt spoke with Energy Economist Alan Moran who said the government’s subsidising of alternative energy sources to fossil fuels deters private sector firms from investing in their own coal or gas-fired power plant. “The government has created the situation whereby no private sector firm can possibly justify spending – the risks are too great,” he told Sky News host Andrew Bolt. “How can you spend money on a power station gas-fired or coal when the alternative competitive power is subsidised to buggery.”
