Week 23: Ministers once again dancing around economic facts to defend their love of coal
This week, I've been shaking my head watching our PM and his ministers scramble to tear down Mike Cannon-Brookes’ bid to buy and decarbonise AGL. For so long, the Morrison Government has argued that “Can Do Capitalism” would be Australia’s way out of the climate crisis. But now that a viable private sector solution has arrived, we see ministers once again dancing around economic facts to defend their love of coal.
While our PM and his party are busy looking back in the rear view mirror at coal power, in North Sydney we can clearly see the amazing view through the windscreen.
This week, I announced to the media our plan to turn North Sydney into a renewable city. I have been working with business and community leaders, and key players within local government, to push for an immediate suspension of the tunnels projects. And I plan to continue working with councils and State Government to turn North Sydney into one of the first net zero urban zones in Australia, as we transition to a fully electrified community.
Thank you again for your support this week, particularly at our Campaign Launch on Sunday. It has been so invigorating to meet and hear from you, and I look forward to more great conversations in the week ahead. I’ll be in Willoughby on Sunday, North Sydney on Wednesday, and hosting breakfast for International Women’s Day early Wednesday morning. Please join us if you can.
North Sydney, the winds are changing. Let’s be the change we want to see because together, we’ll change the climate in Canberra.
