Understorey: All Into Renewables

Wednesday 8th February / presented by Elizabeth PO’ Adrian Glamorgan

Perth’s weather has been strangely awry through summer, reminding Western Australians of the global uncertainties of climate change.  With much of the world calculating how to switch from fossil fuel dependence to renewables, what should be done in our own state?

RenewWA is a coalition that brings people and groups together to advocate for a clean energy future for WA.  With the bulldozers clearing Beeliar bushland through the Christmas-New Year break, RenewWA chose the environmentally friendlier location of Cottesloe Beach recently in order to fly some kites, pull out the solar panels, and talk renewable energy for Western Australia.

Understorey refreshes for 2017, as Elizabeth PO’ speaks with Dr Kingsley Faulkner and Dr Richard Yin (Doctors for the Environment), Toni Walkington (Public Sector Union), Christie Kingston (Farmers for Climate Action), and Piers Verstegen (Conservation Council); and Adrian Glamorgan asks Professor Ray Wills about why he’s optimistic for a future with renewables.
