With a looming energy shortage in New South Wales this coming summer, the ABC reported on a dispute over the Spiringvale mine, the sole supplier of the Mount Piper Power Station in New South Wales. In the article, the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis is quoted as saying, “There are clear options that are well within the capacity of three major multinational energy corporations to solve the problem of a coal shortage-induced NSW peak-power period shortfall over 2017/18 and beyond”.
What the article fails to mention is that the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis is based in Ohio, in the United States. It is funded by wealthy foreign billionaires including the Rockefeller Family Fund, Energy Foundation, Mertz-Gilmore Foundation, Moxie Foundation, William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Growald Family Fund, Flora Family Fund, Wallace Global Fund and the V. Kann Rasmussen Foundation.
Why are these groups quoted in Australian taxpayer media? Their analysis isn’t public and could even be non-existentOverseas activist groups funded by wealthy foreign billionaires with their own agendas shouldn’t be allowed to influence a State Government’s decision on ANY MATTER.
Stand up to stop foreign interests and activist groups undermining AUSTRALIA’S INTERESTS.
