Can Abbott say 'yes' to reducing energy bills?

Tony Abbott must fight the temptation to say 'no' to the Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards Bill and in doing so, help bring both power bills and carbon emissions down.

A little noticed piece of legislation was introduced into parliament last week which is likely to make a big difference to energy bills and carbon emissions – the Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards Bill (GEMS).

This bill aims to move the country toward a single national system for implementing and enforcing minimum standards of energy efficiency and energy rating labels, instead of the current state-based model we currently have.
