State energy ministers have threatened to lock the Federal Government out of a national plan for a clean energy target.


Ministers from Queensland and South Australia have been rallying counterparts in other states to go it alone if the Commonwealth refuses to commit to the target proposed by chief scientist Alan Finkel.


Obviously they haven’t been speaking to Craig Kelly.

I think Australian state governments are beginning to follow the lead of state governments in the United States.  That is, develop a renewable energy industry, irrespective of the policies of the national government.

New Liberal Party president Nick Greiner has urged Malcolm Turnbull and Tony Abbott to "be adults" and resolve their long-standing feud, warning the public displays of disunity will cost the Coalition the next election.


Come on Nick get serious.

You can't seriously expect Abbott to act like an adult.

That's like expecting a mongrel dog not to bark.  :roll:

Power prices: Australia has a gold-plated electricity grid that consumers can't afford

 

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-07-18/australian-gold-plated-power-grid/8721566


Governments are into power price increases at the expense of consumers.


Looks like we need to be asking them some hard questions.

I'd like to know why she called the police in the first place.  I heard on the news yesterday that she called them because of an alleged sexual assault or attempted sexual assault. So, if one of those allegations is true, who was responsible for that crime?

Maybe the perps ran off before the police arrived.

Doctor Who wasn’t the only show that released Trailers at Comic-Con 2017.

In addition to the usual suspects from Marvel and DC comics.

Would you believe David Tennant will provide the voice of Scrooge McDuck in a Disney cartoon.

Four Corners blew the lid off illegal pumping in the Murray Darling.


Gavin Hanlon is a disgrace and has to go. Public servants have to be impartial and not side with anyone.


The NSW government are vandals and they have to go too. Roll on the next election.
