Uh oh:

RenewablePowerThe Australian Government Environment Minister, Greg Hunt says the renewables industry should feel “very supported” under Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, after they complained of investment instability fuelled by Tony Abbott’s hostility towards the sector.

Mr Hunt has also said he would seek ways for Australia to “do more” on climate change with Mr Turnbull after the United Nations conference in Paris, and said the appointment of five new members of the Climate Change Authority board was delayed by the leadership spill.

The former prime minister was frequently scathing of wind turbines and the renewable energy target…

In a change of tack, Mr Hunt told The Australian Financial Review, “I think the renewables industry should feel that with myself, Malcolm Turnbull and Josh Frydenberg, they will be in a very, very supportive environment.” …

Mr Hunt also revealed he was about to appoint five new members to the Climate Change Authority board before last week’s leadership change delayed the decision…

“Malcolm is passionate about the global climate challenge, and I am passionate about it.”

Very bad signs.
