Renewables won’t kill people, but coal will: Bandt

Greens climate and energy spokesperson Adam Bandt MP today responded to claims by the Liberals’ new chief propaganda peddler Craig Kelly that people will die because of renewables.

“No they won’t,” said Mr Bandt.

“Coal kills people. Renewables save lives.

“Craig Kelly is just another ideologue, hell bent on hastening dangerous global warming. This latest foray isn’t unexpected, but it is certainly unfounded.

“If Craig Kelly and the Trumps in the government have their way, more people will die from bushfires, heatwaves, floods and famine as dangerous global warming accelerates.”
