Put politics aside – it’s time to take the power back

Put politics aside – it’s time to take the power back

It’s little wonder our trust in political leaders to do the right thing and make the right decisions about our future has been shaken to the core. We are confronting a trifecta of uncertainty - Brexit, a cliffhanger Australian election and Donald Trump in real contention for the White House.

If it is indeed the case that our political leaders are inherently self-interested, can we count on them to make the right call on matters impacting our future? Important issues such as renewable energy, emissions targets and energy efficiency? It’s Ecocentric’s view that the expectation we place upon our political leaders to shape our energy future is misguided. We can and need to take the power back.
