The PM has no authority now that he’s shown no courage in disciplining his ministry. Did Morrison think that letting ministers act corruptly would be without consequences?

Go coal go. Only other option go nuclear go.

Canavan has no loyalty to his leader. No loyalty to his party. No loyalty to Queensland. No loyalty to Australia. Because he's 100% owned by Big Coal.

I'm totally deflated with those we have to represent us in ALL parties. Greens : far left. Labour: taxes, taxes, panders,sell outs. Liberals/ national: can't get their shit together, sell outs,no backbone. When will someon step up nd start putting Australia nd it's ppl first.

This is just depressing. We have an opportunity to be a world leader in renewable energy...but no...lets stick with bloody coal. Honestly, this government will go down as the biggest waste of time in living history. They are arrogant, self obsessed and nasty.

Gas-fired power will ‘save Australia’ | Sky News AustraliaSky News host Chris Kenny says amid the debate surrounding the feasibility of renewables and coal, it will actually be “gas-fired power that saves the day in Australia”. \n\nMr Kenny said Tuesday’s parliamentary sitting saw more of federal politicians “tearing themselves apart” over coal-fired generation. \n\nGovernment MPs continue to trade blows after Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced $4 million funding for a feasibility study into a new coal plant in Collinsville.\n\nMr Kenny said the discussion around a new coal plant is 'is not the be-all and end all when it comes to our energy need”. \n\n“With so much renewable power already in place … and with all the climate activism, it will be gas-fired power that saves the day in Australia.\n\n“More coal-fired baseload power would be a good thing … [but] the sooner we get plenty of fast-start gas generation the better.” \n It's a shame we can't use all the hot air produced by Chris Kenny to generate electricity. Nuclear hear and now.. Saves what day? Why can't the rest of Australia do what SA did with renewables and a battery - and enjoy lower electricity costs as well?

Australia is 'routinely slammed' for emissions reductions by the 'climate cult' | Sky News AustraliaSky News host Peta Credlin says the “one-sided climate protests” which predominantly target Australia and “Trump’s America”, show how the “climate cult is less about reducing emissions than affirming belief”.\n\nBoth Australia and the US have reduced the carbon emissions by “13 per cent since 2005,” a stark contrast to Canada led by the “ultra-woke” Justin Trudeau who have cut emissions by only two per cent in the same time.\n\nAlthough Australia is “routinely slammed” for reportedly “not doing enough”, it is “one of very few countries” who have reliably met its emissions targets, Ms Credlin said.\n\nThe “climate zealots”, said the Sky News host, believe meeting emissions reductions targets - “as Australia is doing' - is not “nearly as important” as proclaiming that “climate change is the world’s gravest problem”.\n\n“We shouldn't allow the climate zealots to misrepresent the facts because compromising our economic fundamentals to strike a pose overseas is a betrayal of our countries future security,” said Ms Credlin.\n\nImage: Getty\n So true credlin CREDLIN PULL YOUR HEAD IN Odd. I thought affirming Rupert's far right views is the only reason Sky News exists. Sometimes Peta, you just need to hold a mirror and take a good look auspol
