As has clearly been the case for some, Australia’s energy future doesn’t include much coal. The technology road map does call for the maximisation of the life cycles of coal-fired power stations already in use, but once their time has come, there won’t be investment toward building new ones.

The pubs reopened to great rejoicing and some free beer as coronavirus restrictions eased across Australia, although unfortunately, it was too late for millions of litres of suds that had to be tipped down the drain. It was strange to be out, but it felt good once you got used to it.
