Guest essay by Eric Worrall
Sky News, one of Australia’s most popular news services, just gave climate skeptic and geologist Ian Plimer an honest opportunity to explain what is wrong with Australia’s climate obsessed energy policies.
It’s ‘not possible’ to have cheap, reliable energy and reduce emissions
Geologist Ian Plimer told The Outsiders that Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg had caught himself ‘between a rock and a hard place’ when it comes to the government’s energy policies. Mr Plimer said it wasn’t possible for the energy market to provide cheap and reliable energy, but also reduce emissions. It comes after several Liberal backbenchers formed a ginger group to promote the idea of the government subsidising a new coal fired power plant to be build on the existing Hazelwood power station.

A few excerpts from the interview below;
I noticed the interview because it was being played on a continuous loop on a Sky News channel.
A few years ago an interview like this on mainstream media news TV would have been unthinkable, but Climate skeptics seem to be getting more friendly media attention lately, frequently with reporters openly laughing at the ridiculous claims promoted by climate alarmists.
