Tell Tony: Axe The Renewable Energy Target!

We both know the damage the tax on carbon dioxide will do to our great country.

But did you know the “Renewable Energy Target” (RET) is just as bad? And that Tony Abbott refuses to abolish it?

The RET mandates that 20% of power shall be from inefficient “green” sources by 2020. It is the main reason our power bills have been skyrocketing - and will rise even more. 

There is no question about it - the RET needs to go.

Yesterday, Coalition MP’s, led by Queensland Senator and “Father of the Senate” Ron Boswell, and scientist Dr. Dennis Jensen MP, told Tony he must dump this green madness.

Tony Abbott’s response? “Renewable energy [is] an important issue and the Coalition had to commit to it.”

This is unacceptable. It is the same attitude that led to Malcolm Turnbull supporting the ETS. Tony Abbott needs to know it's just not good enough. 

Can you take 5 minutes to tell Tony Abbott to stand up to the radical greens ?

The numbers say it all:

  • Coal fired power station $78-91 per mWh (megawatt/hour)

  • Gas fired power station $97 per mWh

  • Wind power $150-214 per mWh

  • Solar power $400-473 per mWh


[UPDATE: The original blog quoted had some incorrect statistics on costs. This has now been corrected. Our apologies]

What do you think will happen to your power bill if this goes ahead? 

Green schemes are collapsing around the world and have been a disaster inGermanySpainUK and the USAThe British Government has just announced it is scrapping all Green energy subsidies. Australia MUST follow suit.

Yes the Carbon Tax must be scrapped, but if Abbott is fair dinkum he needs to also scrap the 20% RET.

Can you email Tony Abbott on Tony.Abbott.MP@aph.gov.au & phone his office on (02) 6277 4022 and tell him to AXE THE RET?

Your email can be as short as one line or as long as you can make it - as long as Tony gets the message (If you have time, you might also want to contact Senator Boswell on senator.boswell@aph.gov.au and Dennis Jensen MP on Dennis.Jensen.MP@aph.gov.au and thank him for their efforts on this vital issue.)

Tony Abbott can’t take Australians for granted. He MUST do the right thing, and this is his opportunity to prove where he stands. 
Make no mistake: if you think our power bill is high now, it will be many, many times more if the RET isn't scrapped.

If enough people contact Tony Abbott, he WILL do the right thing. It's up to us to make this happen.
