Personal letter to Sarah Henderson

The Hon. Sarah Henderson
MP Federal Member for Corangamite
3A/195 Colac Rd, Waurn Ponds, VIC


Dear Ms Henderson,

Doing something about climate change matters a great deal to me.

I am disturbed and angry to learn that the Renewable Energy Target (RET) is to be reviewed again and that Dick Warburton, a climate sceptic, will head the review.

The whole purpose of the target is to address climate change by bringing more renewable energy into our electricity supply in a gradual predictable fashion that encourages investment.

The Coalition has promised at the two most recent elections to retain the target. I expect the Government to honour all its climate promises.

I would like the target of 41,000 gigawatt hours of renewable energy by 2020 (about 26 per cent) to be increased, so that we can move faster on climate change.

I understand that the present target is costing the average household about an extra dollar a week for electricity. I am more than happy to pay this small charge to clean up our power.

Yours sincerely,

. . . . . . . . . . . . .
