Di Natale used the story of a Japanese soldier kept on fighting 29 years after the end of World War II. “He was completely ignorant that the world around him had changed. Does that sound familiar?

“We know there is no future in coal ….. the gas industry is destroying itself through greed,” he added. The Liberal Party had chained itself to CCS “fantasies” and ultra super critical coal plants.
