Is Australia doing enough on climate change ?
To Ecogeek, Australia plans to soon install a 1 gigawatt wind farm and this kind of project is due to be followed by more as the country plans to have 20 percent of its electricity coming from renewables by 2020.
This seems to be great but the current discussions at the local Senate are being delayed until August because of conservative lawmakers. Australia has much to fear from climate change and is already struggling with a massive drought.
So why aren’t the local elective representatives acting ? This puzzles me but I think that lobbying from coal companies have to do with this…
