Coal jobs before climate panic

February 18, 2019

Common sense about jobs and warming alarmism has prevailed even in the militant left wing CFMMEU, according to Queensland Australian Conservatives Senate candidate Lyle Shelton.

“I wouldn’t normally recommend listening to this union but on this occasion the Labor party should heed their advice and back the opening up of the Galilee Basin’s rich coal reserves,” Mr Shelton said.

“The CFMMEU rightly points out in today’s Australian Financial Review that there are ‘no real jobs in renewable energy, as is already evident in Queensland. Bill Shorten should stand up to the green-left of the Labor party and give a full-throated backing of Queensland coal mining, instead of hiding behind the black-throated finch,” Mr Shelton said.

“West End is a good place to get coffee but its merging of minds with the Greens means it is a bad place from which to take cues on economic development,” he concluded.

Professor Ian Plimer explained to Lyle, why he's so concerned about the current energy situation in Australia.
