Our Government has just told the Clean Energy Finance Corporation (CEFC) -- Australia’s investment fund for renewable energy -- to stop investing in clean energy!

Yep, you heard us right. Joe Hockey finds wind turbines “utterly offensive” so, having slashed the renewable energy target, his Government has directed the CEFC to stop all investment in wind and small-scale solar, rubbing salt in the wounds of a renewables sector that is already battling to keep afloat after years of ever-changing policy and little to no support.

This is yet another step towards the Coalition’s grand plan of scrapping the CEFC altogether. According to Abbott – if renewable energy stacked up economically, then it wouldn’t need this kind of support. Never mind that they are having to compete with a fossil fuel industry that our Government is subsidising to the tune of $10 billion annually.

Whilst Australia buries its head in the sand on the very solutions that could dig us out of this climate mess, the rest of the world is moving ahead. Those so-called “offensive” and “awful” wind turbines last week generated 140% of Denmark’s electricity and will soon provide Kenya with a fifth of its energy needs.

Send a message to our Government to let them know that you find their behaviour “utterly offensive.”
