The future of power generation in Australia


We have arrived at a critical turning point in our country, and that turning point is "Clean Coal". Some people would have you believe that it is the way of the future, and a better option than renewables.

In the blue corner we have scientists and environmentalists who have been warning us for years to stop burining fossil fuels or face disasterous concequences. In the red corner we have miners and politicians who are desperate to continue mining coal and are seemingly unable or unwilling to see past "jobs and growth", and of course the massive revenue that comes with mining coal. (though I am sure that has nothing to do with it at all)

One way or the other, the winner will stamp their mark on our planet forever.
