The Greens do not subscribe to the discredited theory of wind farm syndrome and we did not support the establishment of the inquiry by crossbench senators to further sabotage the clean energy industry. Spending further public funds researching non-existent diseases while completely failing to regulate the well-documented harm from air pollution from coal fired power stations is foolish. However, the Greens do support this motion on the principle that all Senate inquiry reports deserve a response in a timely fashion from the government.
