Albanese to solve the earth’s energy crisis and feed the world

The Prime Minister of Overseas tells NATO he’ll use imaginary technology and good intentions.

“Our goal is for Australia to be a renewable energy superpower. But we’re also ambitious for what we can achieve as a global community,” he will say.

“We will ensure the secure and reliable supply of critical minerals essential for green technologies. And through our research and ­engineering endeavours we will continue to get the best of Australian ingenuity out into the global market.

“And as a major agricultural exporting nation, we will continue to work with our farmers to reduce emissions, supporting global food security and sustainability.”

Meanwhile, Chris Bowen – the world’s worst energy minister – admits Labor’s election pledge of a $275 cut to power prices was a lie. “Figures will move around,” he told the Press Club yesterday.

    Anthony Albanese vows to ease world energy and food shortages.

    Anthony Albanese will tell global leaders Australia will play a key role in easing energy and food shortages caused by Vladimir Putin’s war in Ukraine, and vow to place the nation at the forefront of international climate co-­operation.

    In a speech to a special session of the OECD Council in Paris on Thursday, the Prime Minister will call for a “new era of co-operation” to overcome the widespread economic disruption in the wake of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

    Describing the ongoing conflict as a “humanitarian tragedy”, Mr Albanese will call for wealthy nations to act with “urgency and conviction” to deal with the wider economic fallout amid a global ­energy crisis, spiralling inflation and falling share markets.

    Warning that the “long shadows of conflict and crisis are threatening our shared security”, Mr Albanese will frame Australia as a constructive force in finding solutions to the world’s most pressing problems.

    “I firmly believe we can solve the biggest challenge of our time, while laying the groundwork for long-term economic security and shared prosperity,” Mr Albanese will say, according to an advance copy of his speech.

    “But only if we move forward with the spirit of unity and optimism shown here today. Australia will always do our part.”

    While declaring Australia’s “unwavering moral support for Ukraine”, he will say Australians are also feeling the effects of Mr Putin’s aggression through sky-high petrol and food prices.

    Mr Albanese will declare that Australia is ready to supply key commodities to help restore stability to the global market, saying the nation is well-placed to provide food and energy to nations hardest hit by the crisis.

    “Globally, we know the world’s poorest nations face serious food security challenges – especially in Africa, the Middle East, and the Pacific. This is a looming crisis,” he will say.

    “Australia is a major energy, ­resources and food exporter, and we have a significant role to play in securing access to these goods, ­especially in our Indo-Pacific ­region.”

    Less than six weeks after his election on a platform of a more ambitious path to net-zero emissions, Mr Albanese will tell the 34-member OECD that the fight against climate change must be at the heart of global co-operation.

    “Our goal is for Australia to be a renewable energy superpower. But we’re also ambitious for what we can achieve as a global community,” he will say.

    “We will ensure the secure and reliable supply of critical minerals essential for green technologies. And through our research and ­engineering endeavours we will continue to get the best of Australian ingenuity out into the global market.

    “And as a major agricultural exporting nation, we will continue to work with our farmers to reduce emissions, supporting global food security and sustainability.”

    Flexing his climate change ­credentials on the global stage, Mr Albanese will outline his goal to enshrine his higher 43 per cent emissions reduction target by 2030 in legislation to provide the “certainty industry and investors need – in Australia and beyond”.

    But Mr Albanese’s speech comes just days after G7 leaders were accused of lowering their short-term climate ambitions after reaffirming their commitment to phase out their ­dependency on Russian energy. The seven largest advanced economies had been working towards setting a faster path to net zero emissions, but spiking gas prices due to constrained Russian ­supplies forced them to abandon the plan.

    “In these exceptional circumstances, publicly supported investment in the gas sector can be appropriate as a temporary ­response, subject to clearly defined national circumstances,” the G7 leaders said in a communique ­issued on Tuesday.

    Germany has courted controversy by saying it will restart mothballed coal-fired power plants through “sheer necessity” to help conserve gas supplies ahead of winter.

    In his speech, Mr Albanese will recommit Australia to upholding the OECD’s values and its objective in preserving global stability and advancing human prosperity.

    “We meet today knowing that our task is far from over and that the long shadows of conflict and crisis are threatening our shared security,” he will say.

    “The extraordinary progress we have made over the decades should give us confidence in overcoming these challenges – but it should not feed complacency.”

    He will also throw Australia’s support for the accession of new members to OECD, ­extending its reach into “the dynamic and ­diverse region of Southeast Asia”.

    “After all, we’re an outward-looking nation. A diverse, multicultural nation. An open, trading nation. And in the years ahead, we want to see a stronger, more outward-looking OECD,” Mr Albanese will say. “We believe deeply in this institution. We share its ­values.”

    Mr Albanese will use his visit to OECD headquarters to meet with his former political rival, Mathias Cormann, who was appointed as the economic body’s Secretary-General in June last year after having served as Australia’s finance minister in the previous Coalition government.

    Mr Albanese will go on to meet with French President Emmanuel Macron at the Elysee Palace on Friday to reset relations between the countries after the cancellation of $90bn worth of French-designed submarines.

    Earlier, Mr Albanese had told NATO leaders in Madrid that his government would stand against threats to peace and freedom in the Indo-Pacific and Europe.

    Following his bilateral meeting with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, a Downing Street spokesman said the two leaders had agreed that Australia had “incredible potential to be a world-leader in the use of renewables and make the hyper leap away from coal and other fossil fuels”.

    Typical leftist .As I said in the OZ , from councillors up they want to change the world but their own patch is ignored.

  3. Not Trampis says:

    Chris Bowen ,the highly impressive energy minister , said no such thing. The ALP policy will reduce the price of electricity. When the policy was signed off we did not have the massive increase in fossil fuels. Nor did we have soo many units breaking down in the highly unreliable coal fired power stations that increases their costs.
    Australia is in a unique position in terms of solar and wind power. We quite easily have the lowest cost solar and wind power compared to other nations.

    You’re just on here to shit stir, aren’t you.

    Get back to us in 12 months or so, fool.

    It’s true! There really is one (fool) born every minute, and Non Mentis’ life has been forever blighted by his inability to complete pre-school successfully!

  7. Lee says:

    My brother has just been telling us siblings about upcoming steep rises in his gas and electricity bills.
    Pigs will fly before “ALP policy” will reduce the price of electricity.

  8. Bluey says:

    How long since the election? How many days has Albo been in Australia? Of those, how many were actually addressing issues here?

    I could see absent Albo taking off….

    If a Coalition PM had done the same, the media screeches would be audible on Pluto.

    Like Krudd, Elbow obviously must think he is a world statesman rather than a somewhat lucky political hack.

  11. Riversutra says:

    We will ensure the secure and reliable supply of critical minerals essential for green technologies.

    China controls four-fifths of the global mined supply of rare earths, and an even larger share of the manufacture of powerful rare earth magnets

    I suppose he will ask the Chinese to promise a reliable supply after he is finished joining NATO in declaring them an future enemy. Am I seeing a problem here or is it just my lying eyes again?

  12. Petros says:

    We taking bets on when Albo’s popularity plunges? I’ll give it six months.

  13. Entropy says:

    To be fair, the ALP did a lot of modelling that showed how electricity bills will fall under their policies.

    As usual, GIGO.

  14. Tel says:

    The very unimpressive Chris Bowen has been “getting moron” … as he explained on Sky News.

    “And yes, it is a race, and we’re starting 10 years late. That’s the point.”

    In reality though, Australia has been heavily subsidising rooftop solar for more than a decade and on a per-capita basis has vastly more solar than most countries. The only country doing more would be Germany and they are facing energy rationing.
