Greens make fresh calls to close hazelewood power plant, s마이다스 카지노aying a study was flawed
The Queensland Government on Thursday announced that it would end the controversial Coalminers Association’s monopoly over power plant owners in a move critics called a “sham” and “unilateral action to protect polluters”.
The Opposition said Labor had not called for the coalminers’ association’s closure, calling for the state government to intervene.
The announcement was prompted by an internal review by the Queensland energy minister, Greg Hunt, which concluded that a report into a power plant owned by the coalmining company Comsec in the northern city of Carmel that generated 30% more emissions than the industry standard was flawed.
“This report is fundamentally flawed. There have been a number of deficiencies in it, and I think it needs to be done again. It will take weeks before all the details about what we did and what did not, and how it happened, are published, and we will be making those public later,” Hunt said on Thursday.

The coalmining interests were not consulted as part of the review, and the state government said they were not responsible for Comsec’s power plant.
A spokesman for the Coalition said the decision to stop the coalmine group had already been made and he stood behind the coalminers’ agreement with Hunt.
“The government is working closely with Comsec’s board and members to close this major coalmine and protect jobs and jobs funding in Queensland,” the spokesman said. “This deal will allow Comsec to invest in innovation, expand its community support and deliver high quality electricity.”
Hunt said the coal mine was being closed to make way for a new electricity transmission network that would improve reliability and provide greater resilience to the cyclone conditions.
“We’re going to use existing infrastructure, and we’re not going to have our own, to provide that power,” he said.
But some Greens senators and government MPs said the de솔레어 카지노cision had been made with the express purpose of damaging the coalmine members – and the industry – by making the industry look uncooperative.
“The coalition and the ALP need to explain why they’ve chosen to make this unprecedented exercise … they should apologi빅카지노se to the people of Queensland,” the Greens energy spokesman, Scott Ludlam, said on Thursday.
“It’s been made to look like some of the major polluters have been forced into this, and not the cas
