Last week, I met with the Nature Conservation Council to discuss plans for campaigns to tackle climate change. Its new report ‘Repowering our Regions: A clean-energy roadmap to #Repower NSW’ outlines how NSW could transfer from 77 per cent coal power to 100 percent clean energy by 2030. Our reliance on dirty coal is archaic and has economic and environmental costs and we urgently need to meet our international obligations to prevent catastrophic climate change. We are falling behind Victoria and South Australia which are making excellent progress.
