"Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is happening half a planet away from Australia.
But the ripple effects are plain to see at every petrol station and,
potentially soon, your electricity bill.
As a result of the invasion and Western sanctions on Russian exports, energy
prices have skyrocketed.
If that makes you think nations should have taken steps to secure alternatives
to fossil fuels years ago, you’re not alone. As it is, the much higher energy
prices are likely to accelerate the exit of coal – and gas – from our energy
This should be a wake-up call. It doesn’t matter that Australia is far from the
battlefield. Everyone in the world will be affected in some way."
