Understorey: Climate Emergency 2019~The Premier, Rockingham & COP25

Wednesday 11th December / presented by Elizabeth PO’ Adrian Glamorgan

Premier Mark McGowan's enthusiasm for the fossil fuel industry, particularly LNG, puts its undermining effects on Australia's carbon emissions in the shadows.  Further overlooked is the climate emergency's impact on the Premier's own Rockingham electorate.  According to the government's own findings, within a handful of years it's likely we'll witness rising waters, more energetic tides and salt incursions bearing upon the seaside city.  Paddy Cullen from Clean State Campaign is helping voters get this important message across to their own representative, the Premier.  Meanwhile, in Madrid, young people at COP25 have been calling for meaningful action from all national governments.  From the Marshall Islands to the Mississippi, from The Philippines to the burning farmlands of Australia, humanity's climate emergency has well and truly arrived.  (Image: A Glamorgan)
