Tony Abbott uses Sky News interview to attack renewable energy in what could be seen as an affront to Malcolm Turnbull’s leadership position.
The deepest denial about climate change rests within Australia’s coal, oil and gas companies; which is ironic given that is where some of the impacts will be most keenly felt.
International Energy Agency questions economics of Galilee Basin coal projects, suggesting coal is not popular in India and its use will be rapidly usurped by solar and wind if climate targets are to be met.
