In 2001 the Government announced a National Energy Efficiency and Conservation Strategy with a $79-million, five-year budget.
Yesterday they announced it has failed. In fact the growth in non-renewable energy use under Labour’s plan had been higher than a 2001 “do-nothing” scenario before the strategy was adopted.
Just think then. If they spent twice as much money, they may have failed twice as badly!!
Also remember there is no money available for tax cuts!
