No deal on dirty coal

The federal government announced today it will walk away from its so-called ‘Contract for Closure’ – the plan to help reduce carbon emissions by buying 2000 megawatts of energy from the top five polluting power stations in the country.

Catherine Zengerer speaks with Tony Moore, Climate Change Campaigner, Australian Conservation Foundation, Sean Murray, Friends of the Earth Spokesperson on Coal and Greens Member for Melbourne, Adam Bandt.
