Some years back the LNG people offered to convert all of the coal fired power stations to natural gas free of charge.
The politicians and the coal lobby totally rejected and defeated the proposition.
Australia wobbled onwards burning dirty coal and the LNG guys began shipping the cleaner LNG overseas to China to obtain a revenue.
The ships are very obvious with big white golf ball like tanks protruding from the decks.
Now after (former Prime Minister Scott) Morrison saying ” this is a lump of coal, don’t be afraid ” it has all gone as expected – Greenies still hollering for clean fuel, the shortage of gas and emergency measures trying to fix that and the new (Government) having as well to get stagnant coal fired power stations back online fast.
So to sum it all up, it is the coal lobby and the associated politicians who have totally created the problem.
The gas guys tried but were beaten at every turn.
