Reliance on fossil-fuel based output seen as risk to future competitiveness

Climate change has been embroiled in political debate in Australia for more than a decade, partly because of the fossil fuel industry's sizable contribution to employment and exports.

For the last half of a century it's been: "renewables, hydrogen, or storage could do this, they could do that, by the year 2XXX."

"Fine," I say. "When renewables, hydrogen, or storage can do it is when we should consider spending public money."

Is our goal to address climate change, or enrich venture capitalists?
