Understorey: Climate Emergency 2019~LNG: the Damage Done

Wednesday 13th November / presented by Elizabeth PO’ Adrian Glamorgan

We've had fires since time began, but never like this. All listeners will wish the people of New South Wales well, and especially the brave firefighters risking their lives to protect people and property.  But with the fierce new conditions risking lives and property, it’s surely time to look again at Western Australia’s contribution to the climate calamity.  This week the Conservation Council and its Clean State Initiative produced an important analysis on the contribution of WA’s Liquiefied Natural Gas (LNG) to global heating.  According to the hard evidence, LNG makes a massive contribution to Australia's greenhouse gases, nullifying many other efforts within Australia to try to meet the Paris Agreement. LNG makes little contribution to state revenue, meaning we are missing out on further expenditure devoted to climate offsets. But what damage is being done to our political processes?  Adrian Glamorgan is speaking to chief researcher Chantal Caruso.
