In this article, the author discusses the renewable energy bill passed by the federal parliament to source 20% of the renewable energy in Australia by 2010. He analyzes the credits that will be received by the energy companies under the new energy scheme. He believes that Solar Credits Scheme is still a fraudulent one that will decrease the amount of renewable energy produced under it. He suggests for an immediate action to achieve 100% renewable energy in order to deal with the climate change.
