More proof of the damage done to workers and the poor by the global warming zealots now running Victoria.

Pray that the lights stay on.

Hazelwood Power Station

Hazelwood Power Station

Victoria’s dirtiest [sic] power station will shut down permanently as early as next April, in a blow to the Latrobe Valley that could cost up to 1000 jobs.

The owner of the Hazelwood plant, French energy giant Engie, is expected to hold a board meeting on October 19 or 20 to finalise a decision to close the aging brown coal-fired plant…

Hazelwood has long been targeted by environment groups. It is responsible for up to 15 per cent of Victoria’s greenhouse gas emissions …

Analysts say the electricity market has more than enough generation capacity to cope with Hazelwood’s removal… {But] analysts have given wildly varying estimates of the impact of shutting Hazelwood on electricity prices, ranging from 0.2 per cent to 25 per cent.

And where is the evidence that man’s emissions has made crops fail, storms worse, the climate more deadly?
