Carbon Capture & Storage is “just not doable”
Not a good week for the dinosaur mining industry in the news.
Graham Brown, a well-respected, ex-coal miner from the Hunter Valley, pointed out that “Carbon Capture and Storage is a complete waste of tax payers money”, and that the mining industry knows it but is happy to have the tax payers foot the bill. He maintains, as many do, that our tax dollars would be better spent on ramping up the green collar power industries creating real, sustainable jobs, rather than pouring more money into knowingly hopeless schemes.
Former NSW Sustainability Commissioner Peter Newman advised the Rudd Government to move away from coal (presumably because it’s unsustainable!) and “all the Minerals Councils are to be merged’ according to a report in The Age to “centralise their lobbying power”.
Their cash-strapped ‘supporters’ are clearly feeling the pinch or maybe not getting enough ‘quality’ lobbying for their buck! (According to the report all is not rosy in the toxic mineral council gardens)
Meanwhile final submissions regarding Access to Prime Agricultural Land will be heard at Gunnedah Court on Tuesday 28th April from 9.00am. See you there.
