  • Here in Australia, there’s been a toxic debate about renewable energy. The fossil fuel industry, conservative media and the coalition government have been trying to link blackouts in South Australia, which have been caused by extreme weather, to the high proportion of renewables in that state.

    They’ve also been arguing that rising power bills around the country are a result of increases in renewable energy in the grid.

    But today, just as another extreme storm causes a large blackout in South Australia, we have polling from GetUp showing Australians have not been swayed by these arguments.

    Just over 17% of voters said they thought renewable energy was to blame for rising power prices.
