Joyce, Price and Littleproud make ‘false and exaggerated claims’ at anti-renewables rally
Coalition politicians including Barnaby Joyce, David Littleproud and Jacinta Nampijinpa Price used an anti-renewables rally at Parliament House to make several “false and exaggerated claims” about wind turbines and renewable energy.
The three joined at least 11 other state and federal politicians at the ‘reckless renewables’ rally on Tuesday that a few hundred people attended.
Joyce called for continued focus on “fighting renewables”, Littleproud said the Nationals wouldn’t “spend a cent” on hydro projects and Price questioned the reliability of wind turbines when speaking at the rally.
In a post-rally press conference, Nationals leader Littleproud claimed –without evidence – that offshore wind turbines would destroy local fishing businesses and drive up prices at the supermarket.
