Last Saturday a chap named Ian Carline received 392 votes as the ACT candidate in Invercargill electorate. But 5 of his climate change denying mates got into Parliament, and will be part of the next government in which Gerry (Sexy Coal) Brownlee is likely to be Minister of Energy.
Today a letter from the same Ian Carline appears in the Southland Times:
“..we must have increased reliable supply from a cost effective, efficient source, that is not weather dependent like hydro and wind. Once again we come back to the obvious. Coal.”
– Ian Carline, Act candidate, Invercargill.
