I WRITE in response to the claim by Hume Coal's Ben Fitzsimmons in your article (GP 2/5), and I quote: 'So people who argue (the project is environmentally unsound) . . . what we'll make is coal for the steel used to make renewables'.
THE report 'Community Attitudes to Renewable Energy in NSW' reveals that there is overwhelming support for renewable energy in NSW, both for wind farms and solar farms. A significant majority of respondents indicated they support wind farms in the immediate precinct of their homes and farms.
