Government ‘realises’ it must subsidise fossil fuels for ‘reliable’ base load power

Instead of subsidising renewables, we now have to subsidise fossil fuels to achieve reliable base load power, according to Herald Sun journalist Caleb Bond.

"How funny is that for the greenies," Mr Bond told Sky News host Peter Gleeson.

"Government’s pumped so much money into renewables that they’ve now realised they have to pump money the other way into these fossil fuel gasses … in order to maintain a reliable energy grid."
