Can we email this to MR ABBOT
I think he's already being inundated with information and petitions. Not that he seems to be paying any attention.
Find a good petition to sign perhaps.
Reality is that the current govt are not interested in renewables. They give lip service to it but have made it next to impossible to continue to invest. They killed the Climate Council and still didn't see that the populace is interested enough to crowd-fund a similar organisation. They are deaf to anything to which their mates cannot profit. Our best hope is to vote them out next federal election sometime in 2016.
Amen to that.
