Turnbull rebadges existing clean energy funding, while cutting $1.3 billion and giving fossil fuel donors a leg up
The Government's announcement today of $100 million per year for green cities taken from Clean Energy Finance Corporation, is its third attempt to rebadge existing CEFC funding while cutting $1.3 billion from ARENA and leaving fossil fuel subsidies untouched.
Greens Sustainable Cities spokesperson, Scott Ludlam, said:
"Green cities are a massive opportunity, not a cheap slogan. The Greens will continue to work for cleaner and more energy efficient neighbourhoods without the senseless sting in the tail that Mr Turnbull is inflicting today."
