    The federal government is aiming to exclude the renewable ­energy target from its looming overhaul of the nation’s power supply in a key decision that will sharpen its divide with Labor on the use of coal and gas to guarantee energy security.

    It takes a certain mulish obstinacy to keep insisting that it’s capitalism and free markets which are responsible for, rather than the answer to, the coming Eco-Götterdämmerung.
