Shame, Premier

The Saturday Age

THE brown coal industry is clearly laughing all the way into our polluted future. Our appointment with a long established solar power company was cancelled this week because it was going into receivership. So, with Premier Ted Baillieu introducing Australia's most restrictive planning laws for wind farms (The Age, 30/8), and with solar power companies closing, we are left with the joys of "fracking" (hydraulic fracturing of coal seam gass) and brown coal. Brickbats to the government for such appalling policies.
