Public Forum - Ngaire McGaw's question

"Despite all the policies you have in place to combat climate change, vested interests in Australia (who favour fossil fuels) continue to strongly resist a transition towards 100% renewable energy, which scientists, engineers and others have shown to be technically and economically possible.

Do you see a time in the future when scientists and community groups will be properly heard over the powerful voices of vested interests who continue to perpetuate the myth that renewables can't deliver baseload?"
