New Podcast Episode: Net Zero Emissions for Australiaโ€™s healthcare sector with Dr. Eugenie Kayak

March 24, 2021 - ...healthcare services are vulnerable to a range of risks, including an increase in patient demand and threats to infrastructure, workforce and supply chains. Yet the healthcare sector itself is a significant contributor to climate change through its own carbon footprint, which is estimated to be 7% of Australia’s total carbon emissions. DEA is calling on the healthcare sector to achieve: – An interim emission reduction target of 80% by 2030. – Net zero emissions by 2040. A new report charts this course: “Net zero carbon emissions: responsibilities, pathways and opportunities for Australia’s healthcare sector” Click here to access the Net Zero Carbon Emissions Report....

Al Gore, a Plan to Repower America to Counter Climate Change

July 21, 2008 - ...we could accomplish that goal. But 8 years and 2 months later, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walked on the surface of the moon. To be sure, reaching the goal of 100 percent renewable and truly clean electricity within 10 years will require us to overcome many obstacles. At present, for example, we do not have a unified national grid that is sufficiently advanced to link the areas where the sun shines and the wind blows to the cities in the East and the West that need the electricity. Our national electric grid is critical infrastructure, as vital to the...

Independent Australia: Australia needs to commit to target of net-zero emissions by 2050

March 2, 2020 - ...to the UN Summit in Glasgow later this year in an attempt to avoid signing up to a net-zero emissions target by 2050.  If this is true, it would show there is still a long way to go on the path to redemption.   Acceptance of science must include acceptance that the climate is in crisis and urgent action is essential. Without this caveat, there can be no claim that “we now get climate change”. Dr John Iser is a retired gastroenterologist and a member of Doctors for the Environment Australia The full article was published in Independent Australia on 26 February 2020...

Fears over gas drilling more than hot air

February 23, 2011 - ...a Federal Government report from its Science, Engineering and Innovation Council indicating that Australia could become a net importer of food, if as seems inevitable the country’s population continues to grow and climate change cuts agricultural production. Furthermore, why such alacrity in signing off on $30 billion of projects in the face of concerning reports of the medical dangers, both existing and projected, of this technology leading to the demand for a moratorium in several regions of the USA? ……continued at ABC Online’s The DRUM – Unleashed.

DEA welcomes HCWHโ€™s global road map for zero emissions in healthcare

DEA welcomes HCWHโ€™s global road map for zero emissions in healthcare

April 16, 2021 - ...to begin contributing meaningfully toward national and state/territory net zero emissions efforts. Dr Hayden Burch, co-author of DEAs net zero emissions report, says that “given health care is dedicated to promoting health, preventing disease, and delivering health care services that restore and maintain health, it is therefore critical for the healthcare sector to reduce and ultimately eliminate its direct contribution to the climate crisis—the biggest health threat of this century.” By taking on the greenhouse gases they are directly responsible for, hospitals and health systems can save money, clean up their own house, and provide leadership for the sector overall....

A tale of two coal mines; how our future health is decided

March 4, 2007 - ...to impose a condition on the mining lease that emissions be avoided, reduced or offset. Ian Lowe was one witness for the Conservation Council. The Tribunal dismissed the action because it was not satisfied that there was a demonstrated causal link between the mine’s GHG emissions and any harm or environmental impact caused by global warming. In making this decision the Tribunal questioned the veracity of the Stern Report and disagreed with factual data from the 4th IPCC report The decision is detailed at http://www.lrt.qld.gov.au/lrt/PDF/Xstrata_a33.pdf so you can make up your own mind. It will be seen that the Tribunal...

Carbon Offsetting Your Personal Footprint- A Guide

February 25, 2008 - Many members of Doctors for the Environment have asked us whether they should offset their travel and how should they do it. They have expressed concern about how they choose a scheme and how they assess whether the planted trees will be kept alive and have the prospect of living for 100 years and indeed whether they will be relaced if they die. Offsetting can be done through mechanisms other than forestry with renewable technologies and energy efficiency projects. Critics of these mechanisms argue that they would be done anyway without your support. By contrast forestry has additional tangible benefits...

How Peak Oil will affect Health Care

July 6, 2008 - ...interactions of the drugs on the body and on each other render medications far more dangerous than they are on their own). Currently the drug industry receives over £10 billion of the NHS funding (Department of Health, 2007) and with the rise in oil prices having a direct effect on the cost of medicine, it is only possible to speculate what would happen if these costs were to double over a two to three year period. Whatever the outcome of this, it is likely to be dramatic. According to the UK’s Department of Transport, 5% of all car journeys are...

โ€œOverloading Australiaโ€ by Mark Oโ€™Connor and William Lines. Book Review

The inadequate performance of the press is also analysed and indeed the suppression of information by them, presumably in support of business interests. Indeed one notes that the barriers to acceptance are much the same as those operative in the climate change debate. The only problem I found with the book was a deviation from...

Climate Change (National Framework for Adaptation and Mitigation) Bills 2020

November 20, 2020 - Zali Steggall’s proposed climate change Bills have triggered the first parliamentary inquiry into why Australia should commit and legislate to net zero emissions by 2050. The Bills will assist the health sector in driving mitigation, adaptation and resilience planning that is needed to deal with the climate change health emergency. DEA wholly supports the Bills in setting specific targets for net zero emissions and adjusting stricter interim targets to achieve those goals. DEA’s submission is here....

An ABC of Threats to the Great Barrier Reef

January 13, 2012 - The dredging of the harbour adjacent to Gladstone to prepare for the gas port at Curtis Island has coincided with the appearance of severely diseased fish in the harbour. This has increased the degree of concerns over the lack of action to prevent harm to the reef. In an article in the ABC Drum, DEA has drawn attention to the many potential pollutants flowing onto the Reef from huge coal and CSG developments in Queensland. http://www.abc.net.au/unleashed/3776784.html If it comes to pass, will the Great Barrier Reef with all its beauty, tourism and fishing, be exchanged for short-term fossil-fuel profits, royalties...

The lively discussion centred around alternative models to the current patent system, with MSF suggesting that the most important modification to the current system from an equity perspective would be to break the existing link between the expense of research and development and the final product’s cost to the consumer. I also attended a fascinating presentation by a Danish businessman, Mikkel Vestergaard Frandsen who describes himself as a ‘humanitarian entrepreneur’. Mr Frandsen invented, and distributed, a mosquito net impregnated with insecticide that he credits with reducing malaria by up to 50% in the countries in which...

Dieldren and Breast Cancer

December 4, 2008 - Editors note. There is increasing concern about toxic chemicals in our environment. Dieldren, an organo-chlorine insecticide widely used between the 1950s’s and 70’s, is an example of the compounds called persistent organics pollutants which indeed persist in the environment and the human body. While dieldren is no longer used in Australia there are persistent organic pollutants that are. Dieldrin residues still persist in the environment, food and people. Exposure to dieldrin at high levels has been shown in both humans and animals to have numerous toxic effects including neurotoxicity and hepatocarcinogenicity. There is also substantial evidence that dieldrin has oestrogenic...

Examining links between AIDS and Climate Change

Yet, these links have received little analysis. This paper seeks to address that gap. It first focuses on scientific issues, identifying major, minor, and speculative pathways by which HIV and climate change are likely to interact. These interactions are, here, called the HIV and Climate Change Complex (HACC). The maximum impact of Climate Change is in the future, likely to occur decades after the peak incidence of HIV. The severity of the HACC will largely be...

Noff summarises the problem “Those who have spent decades diagnosing the problem have no power to write the prescription”. What are the reasons for the fall in interest? The reasons are probably diverse, some suggestions are • There can only be so much concern registered in the human mind and other things have taken over, in particular the financial crisis. The relegation of the issue may have been fostered by governments thrashing around to alleviate a financial crisis. With climate change there is a dichotomy between what the public...
