CLIMATE SPECTATOR: Libs’ 'future PM' no energy expert

Touted Liberal candidate Angus Taylor wants to curb the renewable energy target benefits, but his claims on wind versus gas costs are out by 400 per cent.

A few days ago Angus Taylor (Rhodes Scholar, former McKinsey Partner and billed as a future prime minister by Liberal MP Alby Shultz) was on the front page of the Australian Financial Review calling for the Renewable Energy Target to essentially be neutered (existing projects would be compensated, but there would be no ongoing incentive for new projects). 

It turns out that Taylor has been distributing a ‘discussion document’ around the Liberal Party in support of his campaign prepared by Port Jackson Partners, a consulting firm in which he’s a partner.
