Big-Budget Headline-Slinging Quick-Fix Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk "The Battery of the North"

Annastacia Palaszczuk, the Premier of Queensland, has been making big budget announcements about green energy at the Labour State Conference on the weekend. She calls the Pioneer-Burdekin Pumped Hydro project "The Battery of the North". Save Eungella are opposed to this project and believe that Palaszczuk's announcements are just for show.



This is just a political move to make headlines. Palaszczuk doesn't care about the environment and the impact that the Pioneer-Burdekin pumped hydro project will have on the Eungella area. Under Palaszczuk's plan, regional Queensland will be the beating heart of the state's renewable energy transformation – housing pumped hydro assets, world-class solar and wind farms, and a new transmission network to deliver this energy to the rest of the state.


However, we believe that this plan will have a devastating impact on the Eungella area. The Pioneer-Burdekin pumped hydro project will destroy the natural beauty of the area and have a negative impact on the local wildlife. Palaszczuk has also announced that Queensland will establish three new renewable energy 'corridors' as part of a $145 million investment.


We believe that this investment is just a way for Palaszczuk to make headlines and show that she is doing something about the environment. In reality, this investment will have a negative impact on the Eungella area and the local community.Palaszczuk's renewable energy announcements are just for show. She doesn't care about the environment or the impact that her projects will have on the local community. Save Eungella, will continue to fight against the Pioneer-Burdekin pumped hydro project and any other projects that will have a negative impact on the environment and the local community.
