Not a bad result. The poll was conducted from 22/10/2012 to 31/10/2012 at peoplesretreview.org.au. 5363 people responded to the survey.
Also in the news, this story titled “Call to cut renewables target rejected” was a sight for sore eyes. It said;
“Australia’s Climate Change Authority has rejected calls by some of the country’s biggest energy companies to scale back the national 20 per cent renewable energy target, saying it should be left largely untouched.
In its first major release since being set up in July, the authority says significantly altering the target — mandating 20 per cent of Australia’s electricity generation should come from renewable energy sources — would hurt investor confidence
Significant industry players, including Origin Energy, Energy Australia and the Business Council of Australia, proposed the target be reduced as they said it was set to be overshot, resulting in higher industry costs than necessary.”
A win for climate change mitigation, and some common sense for once! I am impressed.
