The gov has made it worse for renewables in Australia now if they had of done nothing at all, as the new energy policy makes it mandatory to get a certain amount of electricity out of burning coal (so much for the free market).
The decision is completely at odds with Australians and will do nothing to help the gov's abysmal poll performance. Now 8 points behind Labor and behind 21 Newspolls in a row.
Not only that, but it will make it impossible for Australia to meet it's climate change commitments to the Paris agreement. As Greens Di Natale said, you can't change the laws of physics.
