Energy minister Josh Frydenberg has hinted that the COAG approval of 49 of the 50 Finkel Review recommendations – despite the absence of the Clean Energy target – will signal the point when Australia’s energy market turned forever.

And when we see the extraordinary bullying, ugliness and downright stupidly from the likes of Alan Jones, Craig Kelly and the the Murdoch media response to vehicle efficiency standards?
And what to the Finkel Review recommendations actually mean, and what will the generator obligation clause do? And if the AEMC is responsible, will anything actually happen?
