Understorey: Climate Emergency 2019~Critical Times in WA

Wednesday 19th June / presented by Elizabeth PO’ Adrian Glamorgan

State Labor has had eight years in opposition, and now more than two years in office - and still no clear, integrated, or determined plan to act on climate change.  Western Australia has the second highest per capita greenhouse emissions across the Commonwealth.   The Environment Protection Authority attempted to act in March 2019 by moving to control emissions from our biggest polluting projects, but was attacked by industry and cautioned by Premier Mark McGowan.  Now the EPA has invited comment - and you can make a submission.  Conservation Council director Piers Verstegen gives Understorey background to WA Labor's inertia on climate action, gives credit where it is due, and points to where firm progress must be made.
