The 'Climate Change Authority' is the driving force behind the report arguing for an increase in electricity prices. This bunch of green dictators want you to be poorer so that their mates who flog 'green' products can stay in business. At its heart they want to force you to give (not spend) money to people they like.
From the article - "companies, which have been investing heavily in wind energy, said investor certainty was important." Important!!!!! Bullshit!! Read it again, What it really says is this - "Companies that have invested heavily in products that unless people are forced to buy them will go broke unless people are continued to be forced to buy that product" . That's the essence of all these green schemes. Take money from some people and give it to other people.
Further - The Clean Energy Council backed the Authority's call, and deputy chief executive Kane Thornton said costs of the scheme were minor compared to the cost of inaction on climate change.
"It's a pretty low cost insurance policy from our point of view,'' he said.
Isn't it nice that Mr Kane Thornton thinks that forcing most people to pay their hard earned money for his dreams and plans is a "Minor Thing". I suppose that if someone stole a small amount of money from him he would consider it a "Minor Thing" as well. I can't see much difference between Mr Thornton and his green mates and the druggies who does a theft or robbery, after all they need the money and it's not much. Just a "Minor Thing".
It's a strange world where the 'supposedly' party of the working person - Labor has introduced taxes and levies on those people to support wealthy green investors.
The sad thing is that there is no 'Climate Change problem' there never was and won't be. Just lots of spivs and con artists getting wealthy off the backs of ordinary people.
