Solar thermal power generation at Port Augusta – SA Parliamentary Inquiry

December 1, 2012 - Port Augusta has experienced pollution from its power stations for many years. Doctors for the Environment Australia accessed air pollution data recorded by Alinta and the EPA over a decade and concluded on the basis of review by its experts that there were more occasions of excess emissions than acceptable by national standards… Submission to the Parliamentary Inquiry into solar thermal power generation at Port Augusta....

Submission: Australia’s Technology Investment Roadmap

June 30, 2020 - The Australian Government invited brief commentary on their Technology Roadmap to guide investment in energy generation over the next few decades. One key concept in this Roadmap is the notion of technology “neutrality”. However, this concept should be rejected as technologies are not equivalent in their potential to reduce emissions. There are sufficient zero-emitting technologies available for further development without wasting resources on fossil-fuels. The Roadmap also fails as it does not have a “destination”, that is, a well-defined emissions-reduction target. For details of DEA’s submission, see here....

The Driven: Electric buses and trains are the answer, not more cars

September 9, 2020 - COVID-19 has infected and killed over 500 people in Australia and impacted thousands more. Dr Graeme McLeay and A/Prof Vicki Kotsirilos AM state that there is, however, another silent and largely ignored health hazard, and that is air pollution. Approximately 3,000 premature deaths occur each year as a result of air pollution. About half of these deaths come from transport pollution, with cars contributing the bulk of that. With Australia’s air quality standards currently under review, we have an opportunity to introduce laws that will substantially improve the air we breathe. Electric vehicles can reduce air pollution. They can also...

Underground Water Impact Report for the Surat Cumulative Management Area (July 2019)

July 11, 2019 - Doctors for the Environment Australia believes that this report must be seen in the context of possible harm to the sustainability of Queensland and Australia, and in this regard we are concerned with sustainability of two pillars of human health; water resources and the maintenance of food producing land which in turn depends on its supporting biodiversity. These essentials need to have priority over resource development, which can be transient, and result in lasting harms. Consequently, note must be made of the Climate Change Emergency, the world and national biodiversity crisis and the possibility of stranded fossil fuel assets Underground...

Proposed variation to the ambient air quality measure standards for ozone, NO2 and SO2 submission

July 3, 2019 - Australia’s air pollution standards, known as National Environment Protection Measures (NEPM), were set in 1998 and are long overdue for revision. These standards are intended to protect public health, but they have not kept up with new research on the health impacts of air pollution. Health effects occur at lower concentrations than previously thought. Many foreign jurisdictions review their air standards every five or ten years and have progressively lowered permissible levels over time. The particle standards were updated in 2015, and the current review is for sulphur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and ozone. These three pollutants are quick...

Budget2020: DEA calls for a #HealthyRecovery

October 8, 2020 - With Budget 2020 now upon us, our federal government has an opportunity to implement policies that address the COVID-19 economy recovery and climate change, which also has potentially catastrophic health and economic impacts for current and future generations. So what are DEA’s budget asks?  Climate change Any stimulus package must take climate change into account. Efficiency measures across all sectors must have the twin purpose of creating jobs and bringing down emissions.  Gas industry  Further federal support for the gas industry must consider the climate impacts, Australia’s obligations under the Paris Agreement, and the possibility of stranded assets in fossil...

Health, mining reform needed for coal seam gas industry

August 8, 2011 - [The full article appears at ABC online (The Drum – opinion)]. Enough evidence has emerged at the Senate Inquiry into coal seam gas to merit significant reform orchestrated by the Federal Government. The New South Wales inquiry, followed no doubt by those in other states, is likely to illustrate the need for national action. There are two fundamental issues. The state mining acts were enacted at a time when the true meaning of the word ‘sustainability’ was defined but not accepted. We are now in a different world where mining should not have primacy over food production; that is not...

FACT & ACTION SHEET – Cash for containers

April 18, 2013 - In this F&A sheet, we will be discussing Cash for Containers, which is a recycling campaign aimed at implementing a Container Deposits System (CDS) across all states in Australia. In Australia, this system involves paying a 10c deposit, which can be refunded if the container is presented to an authorized recycling facility. It has been successfully implemented in SA for over 30 years, while NT recently adopted this strategy in 2012. However, the larger states of NSW, VIC and QLD have yet to follow.

Submission to the West Australian Draft Forest Management Plan 2014-2023

November 4, 2012 - The draft management plan should be acknowledged for recognising and including some of the important factors that will determine the health and sustainability of our SW forest ecosystems over coming decades. Whilst climate change and related impacts have been included, the plan falls well short of adequately accounting for those potential changes and their consequences, particularly with respect to biodiversity loss. Biodiversity underpins the functioning of ecosystems, and the natural services provided are the very foundation of human health. As such, loss of biodiversity fundamentally compromises our efforts to improve and promote our health and wellbeing. But this linkage is...
