Bandt’s message to Labor: Don’t betray renewables by supporting NEG.
Greens climate change and energy spokesperson Adam Bandt MP today called on state Premiers to reject the NEG deal at tomorrow’s COAG meeting, which now includes a slush fund for coal. Mr Bandt said that if states roll over and support the NEG, they’ll be betraying renewable energy.
“A NEG deal that includes a bag of cash for coal spells death for renewables,” said Mr Bandt.
“The NEG obliterates investment in renewable energy, so a NEG with a coal fund attached will be even worse.
