Barnaby backs coal unless Australians want nuclear power supply

Author: Kate

Barnaby Joyce has called the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) recommendation to phase out coal by 2050 as “wrong and ridiculous”, while once again suggesting Australians need to look at nuclear power.

Last weekend the IPCC, the world’s foremost panel on climate change, issued a report stating global greenhouse gas emissions must reach zero by 2050 in order to stop global warming at 1.5 degrees Celsius.

Will Wentworth play out in the bush?

Author: Kate

The threat of strong independent candidates to the major parties in the upcoming federal election won’t be as pronounced in rural seats according to a leading political commentator.

The Coalition and Labor Party voted on Tuesday to grant another 1000 days of royalty-free exploration to the gas giant for 17 wells at its Wilga Park Power Station.

Independent Australia Johanna Evans

Author: Kate

Community resistance from a small town has left the future of a large scale pipeline project in question, writes Johanna Evans.

Guardian Gabrielle Chan

Author: Kate

Prominent rural advocates have become increasingly vocal over a potential return of Barnaby Joyce to the National party leadership as the prospect of a concerted independent push in rural areas gains momentum after the Wentworth byelection.

A nascent political movement, Anyone But Nats, has started to run advertising across northern NSW ahead of the 2019 state and federal elections. It has been funded by the IT businessman, Charles Tym, whose family has donated $20,000 to fund 400 advertising spots across regional television stations.
