ELLEN: Carbon Capture a Con

Victorian Greens spokesperson for Energy and Climate Change, Ellen Sandell, has criticised Labor’s plan to store carbon dioxide beneath the seabed as a hollow attempt to prop up the coal industry.

Quotes attributable to Ms Sandell.

“This is an attempt by Labor to paint itself as environmental while continuing to rely on dirty brown coal.

“This technology is not proven or commercial anywhere in the world, yet Victoria is spending $150 million of our taxpayer dollars on it, and that figure will multiply if this project goes any further.

“Interstate we have governments investing in storage batteries for renewable energy, yet here in Victoria we’re stuck with Labor trying to bury fossil fuel emissions off some of the most pristine coastline in the state.

“The Andrews Government needs to stop propping up the coal industry and invest more in proven renewable energy and battery technology instead.”
