Like all on the extreme environmental Left, Bandt inhabits a fantasy world where a country like Australia can simply stop using coal, like, today, and our entire economy will continue as normal, powered by, er, you know, solar and wind, right? Total f**kwit.
Mr Bandt said he was “stunned” to hear the state would potentially expand brown coal mining for both domestic use and export and vowed the Greens would try and block the move federally.
“The Premier, Ted Baillieu, is an environmental vandal and must be stopped,” the Melbourne MP told reporters in Canberra.
“It seems that the Government refuses to accept that coal causes climate change because if they accepted that they wouldn’t be taking this course of action,” he said. (source)
It’s good to see the Greens reminding everyone how disconnected they are from reality now and again. And also reminding voters that it is ecotards like him that are running the country, thanks to Julia’s grubby deal back in 2010.
