I think you meant global dimming. I believe you Victorians are maintaining the Hazelwood power plant to protect the OBPs' eyesight from harmful UV rays.

Are you kidding?

I'm not all that familiar with facilities in NSW but here in Victoria
you only have to drive down the Princess Highway through the Latrobe
Valley to see what a mess the coal mining area is.  There are smoke
stacks, huge open-cut mines, steam cooling towers, etc.  The haze from
the coal burning casts a pall that drifts many kilometres downrange, not
to mention the hole in the ozone layer.

On a quiet day you can hear the OBPs and bats coughing.
