Coal or wind in your backyard?

In Victoria, planning laws governing wind farms are more stringent than those that apply to mining. Yet this seems completely contrary to their relative dangers to the environment and local communities.

If you’re going to ‘pick winners’ from the energy market, you at least want to choose wisely. So it’s hard to see why Victorian laws treat coal and coal seam gas more favourably than renewable energy.
