This week, The Qld Premier Anna Bligh attended the Council of Australian Governments (COAG).
The Premier wants to ensure Qld is looked after in any carbon pricing package. Ms Bligh said while a carbon tax would impact on Qld’s “carbon intensive economy”, she remained committed to supporting emissions reductions.
However the Qld Premier still want to ensure that Queensland gets the best possible deal out of this package.
When the Qld Premier met with Prime Minister Julia Gillard, this week, there were some very intense negotiations. The Premier is still looking for some sort of improvement.
I note that Qld (and other State Governments) have had plenty of opportunity to start a transition to cleaner energy generation.
Could somebody tell me why the QLD Government divested itself of wind assets in 2007?
