Climate unSmart

Some more bad news in my local area. The premier has now axed the Climate Smart Home program. I've talked about this program before - it was great. Helping reduce greenhouse emissions, and helping people save on power bills at the same time. It just made so much sense.

What doesn't make sense is having a mantra of 'easing the cost of living' and then axing a program that helps people ease their cost of living. It particularly doesn't make sense to axe a bill-reducing program (that also helps the planet) to save $5 million, having just announced spending $60 million on a bill-reducing program that does nothing for the planet.

Crazy times.
