When people get shouted down for their views, they will shut up or tell you what you want to hear... until Election Day. Those “quiet” voters that ScoMo alluded toSecond is what seems to be called the 'shy Tory syndrome' - conservative voters not expressing their true intentions for whatever reason, but when they get the chance in the privacy of a poling booth - they go for it.
But it needs to be discussed,That has as much chance of getting up as the abolition of negative gearing.
That’s because they went to the other side of the equation and blew up some coal fired power stations and also won’t build more baseload. Reduce supply.....I've yet to see the $500 drop in energy prices promised after abolition of the carbon tax over the last 6 years.
Couldn’t agree more. High hopes all round but turned out to be a real Fizzer. Such a disappointment.... I tend to disagree on your assessment of Turnbull - to get the top job he had to court the right and was effectively without the ability to put his stamp on government. Many, including me, had high hopes but in the end he couldn’t perform ..
Where the coalition goes now will be interesting.the right/more conservative members of the coalition government have had a powerful position? The party was dragged much more to the right under their influence.
Those figures come from a report commission by the Minerals Council that was released over 2 years ago. I think the solar figure includes feed-in tariffs, which aren't really relevant to federal policy, and the high end of which are being phased out. The wind figure seems to match with the price of a LGC for the RET. The price for these has continued to fall as more capacity comes online, and given supply will exceed demand, you can expect these to rapidly head towards $0 in the few years.On the more optimistic side I hope the country can have a proper discussion on important matters such as Energy policy.Going down the track of 50-100% renewables is crazy.And for those who think renewables are cheaper than coal or other energy generation remember you must take into account the subsidies.In 2018 for wind they were $74 per MWH,Solar $214 per MWH and for coal 40 cents per MWH.
LGC spot prices fell from above $71.90 at the date of our last market update on 4 October 2018 to $39 on 14 February 2019.
- LGC forward prices for 2020 and 2021 have also fallen and are at $23.60 and $14.75 respectively
Mon 20 May: 9:12am - ABC chief elections analyst Antony Green: Coalition to form majority Government with at least 77 seatsDont they know that until Antony Greene says who won, the result is unknown?
Jeez, she looks like a clown after that red shoe performance on Saturday. Can't imagine why she thought that would be a good idea..... clearly she swallowed the bait, hook, line, and sinker from Penny and Billy, and punted on a ALP win and the gifting of a first class diplomatic posting.<snip>
He is a backstabber and the source of most leaks along with Julie Bishop.

The regulator says:
Both the RET and Carbon Price have proved to be effective at reducing emissions, and lamb roasts haven't risen to $100 as predicted. If we put market mechanisms in place, we can reduce our emissions soon with little financial pain. So good reason to be optimistic.
