Yes 2 Renewables‘ Leigh Ewbank (aka: The Vegemite Man) joined the BEAM AGM for a campaign update and presentation on the wind energy politics and policy in Victoria. After setting the scene on the state of renewable energy Ewbank identified Baillieu’s restrictive planning laws and the anti-wind farm scare campaign as the two main barriers to shifting from polluting fossil fuels to clean renewable energy sources.
Ewbank lauded BEAM: Mitchell Environment Group for their efforts combating misinformation from local wind farm opponents. Yes 2 Renewables and BEAM’s collaboration has strengthened both groups and help hold anti-wind farm campaigners accountable for their spin. Ewbank looks forward to working with BEAM’s dedicated members in the future and encourages everyone to support the Yes 2 Renewables campaign. Y2R welcome donations and volunteers.
