Hunt's new brown coal adviser

The Environment Minister has a new adviser that was an aggressive lobbyist for the interests of Hazelwood power station and argued against the Renewable Energy Target. But he has support from a wind industry leader.

Climate Spectator understands that a new adviser, Patrick Gibbons, has been appointed to Environment Minister’s Hunt’s office. Gibbons has a long history with efforts to discourage and dismantle policies supportive of renewable energy, energy-efficiency and carbon pollution reduction more generally.
