Say it now! No more coal-fired power!!

November 16, 2010

And if you were wondering whether coal-fired power is going to grow or not, look at today’s sustainability report from Westpac and its conclusion that the bank would avoid involvement in “inefficient and high-carbon emitting assets into the future.”

So much for the so called brown faction – much diminished in the NSW cabinet.

Even if there were proposals for more coal-fired power, the banks in a climate of uncertainty aren’t going to fund them.

The biggest environmental commitment from the Keneally government can now be: no additional coal-fired power in NSW.
