‘Greenhouse Cost of Meat’ article by Geoff Russell June 2007

September 26, 2007 - ...person on the CSIRO diet (14 red meat serves per week — a serve is 60-100gms) to a vegan diet. This saved a massive 5.7 tonnes per annum. Why is it so? To understand the above results we need to understand the meat production chain. This chainis long and energy rich. It starts not with cattle trucks or butcher’s freezers but further back, much further back. Australia has always been a large grain producer, but we now feed more grain to animals than our entire 1960’s production (REF). During the 2002-2003 drought, we imported hundreds of thousands of tonnes of...

Green China and Young China

August 1, 2007 - ...not completed the reform of the administrative decision-making process. Many large projects that will have far-reaching consequences get the go-ahead without the public being aware of them. Even if the public finds out about the projects in advance, there are no channels through which they can express their opinions, and the public interest is eroded. Change requires democracy and a mature legal system. It requires public participation and transparency in public affairs. The longer I am involved in environmental protection, the more I realise the importance of democracy and the legal system. I am convinced that environmental protection cannot be...

Stop drilling for oil in the Great Australian Bight (April 2019)

April 24, 2019 - ...Bight. We have made a submission on the Stromlo-1 Exploration Drilling Programme to NOPSEMA with the recommendation that the proposal should not be approved. The risk from drilling, though small, cannot be avoided, and the outcome on the sustainability of the Bight from a major spill far outweigh any transitory economic benefits. Furthermore, impacts on climate change from expanded oil production are unacceptable. The submission to the National Offshore Petroleum Safety and Environmental Management Authority (NOPSEMA) details lasting community and environmental damage from the Exxon Valdez and Gulf of Mexico spills.  Read our submission: Stromlo-1 Exploration Drilling Programme submission 03-19...

Fight for the Tarkine

February 17, 2013 - ...an environmentally and economically sustainable future for the region through eco-tourism and selective primary industries such as the proposals to re-work old mine sites. The Cradle Coast Authority, a body formed and supported by various local governments, in 2008 reported that a sustained income of almost $60 million per year with 1100 ongoing jobs could be generated through the establishment of a Tarkine National Park. This is more jobs than Tasmanian Premier Lara Giddings believes will be generated by an expanded mining industry in the region. Unfortunately, it now looks as though North-West Tasmania will play host to Pilbara-style open-cut...

Muswellbrook Chronicle: Singleton Dr Bob Vickers, and member of Doctors for the Environment Australia, weighs in on recent Dartbrook coal mine decision

August 23, 2019 - THE NSW Independent Planning Commission (IPC) recently decided on the Dartbrook underground coal mine, writes Dr Bob Vickers. In its decision, they approved the mine to continue operations until 2022, but did not support a five-year extension recommended by the NSW Department of Planning. In the words of the IPC, this project “would not be in accordance with the principles of ecologically sustainable development or inter-generational equity; and, as such, is not in the public interest”. The IPC cited concerns about air pollution, water security, social costs and economic impacts of Dartbrook. These, however, are not just affected directly by...

The Great Barrier Reef at a crossroads- UNESCO Report

June 6, 2012 - ...implemented no-take zones across 30% of the reef, and this has been vital to restoring the ecological health of many parts of the reef. With the election of the Newman government, a fresh Federal-state row is brewing over the reef; it’s strongly reminiscent of the Bjelke-Petersen days. The new Premier has refused to slow development despite the World Heritage report, declaring that Queensland “is in the coal business”. He is at odds with Federal Environment Minister Tony Burke, who has welcomed the report and criticised the new Queensland government’s rush to open up new ports along the reef. This Federal-State...

We need to act on climate change now – by Professor David Karoly

July 9, 2009 - ...policy relevant but policy neutral, and contain no recommendations. The IPCC’s Fourth Assessment Report was written by hundreds of scientists, reviewed by thousands more, and more than 100 governments, then approved unanimously by all the governments and released in 2007 (this assessment is available from www.ipcc.ch ). Independent assessments by the US National Academy of Sciences and the US Climate Change Science Program reached the same conclusions as the IPCC. The IPCC conclusions on climate change science were: ● “Warming of the climate system is unequivocal”; ● “Most of the observed increase in global average temperatures since the mid-20th century...

Tarkine Wilderness another victim of the Mining Boom

April 18, 2012 - ...Like the Shree Minerals proposal, both of these projects are now undergoing an environmental assessment in which the federal government must pretend the area has no heritage values. Given that these major projects are now undergoing assessment, and that any future heritage listing will have no impact on the approval process or their approval status, one might question the protective value of putting the area on the National Heritage List. Certainly, given its well-known heritage status, it would seem fruitless at this stage to undertake further heritage assessments. Despite this, the Australian Heritage Council, having already found that the Tarkine...

GP fears for health of gasfield residents

Hopefully it will encourage the Queensland Government to do the right thing by this community and others,” Dr Redmond said. Report: Symptomatology of a gas field by Dr Geralyn McCarron.

Polluted by profit: Johann Hari on the real Climategate

May 22, 2010 - ...they are putting profit before planet. They are supporting a system that will lead to ecocide, yet where more revenue will run through their accounts, for a while, as the collapse occurs. At Copenhagen, their behaviour was so shocking that Lumumba Di-Aping, the lead negotiator for the G77 bloc of the world’s rainforest-rich but cash-poor countries, compared them to the CIA at the height of the Cold War, sabotaging whole nations. How do we retrieve a real environmental movement, in the very short time we have left before the damage is irreparable? Charles Komanoff, who worked as a consultant for...

We learn from the Foundation’s “medical director” Sarah Laurie, an unregistered doctor, that all of these conditions “correspond directly with the operation of wind farms”. Laurie claims to have conducted “field research” analysis but is not affiliated with any accredited research institution, has not had her research on human subjects approved by any institutional ethics committee and consequently will find that she is unable to publish her research in any reputable medical journal where formal ethics clearance is of course mandatory whenever human subjects are involved.

The Rally at Acland to oppose the Injustices of a Coal Mine

March 6, 2012 - ...for the day because of the rally. We then drove into what is left of the town of Acland and spent several hours there. In the middle of the town remains the pristinely maintained park, but many of the houses are now gone. Despite the fact that stage 3 has not been approved, New Hope Coal has moved many of the houses from the properties it purchased to a field not far away from Acland. Because many of the houses have not been sold, it’s commonly felt that the houses were moved to make Acland appear less like a town,...

Mineral Resources (Galilee Basin) Amendment Bill 2018 Submission

January 25, 2019 - The Queensland government is considering a new bill – the Mineral Resources (Galilee Basin) Amendment Bill 2018 – that would effectively stop all coal mining in the Galilee Basin. DEA has provided a submission to the parliamentary committee outlining the compelling reasons the Mineral Bill should be approved. The risks to water security, ecosystems and air pollution are cause enough, but the overarching concern are the enormous health, economic, security and environmental costs of an inadequate response to global warming. The report’s due date is 30th April 2019. Read the Mineral Resources (Galilee Basin) Amendment Bill 2018 submission 01-19...

Doctors Lament The Health Costs of HRL Power Station Approval

March 30, 2012 - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 29th March 2012 Doctors for the Environment Australia today expressed disappointment at the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal’s decision to approve the 600 MW HRL Dual Gas coal fired power station. The VCAT decision overturns a previous Environment Protection Authority ruling that the power station should only go ahead at half the size. Doctors for the Environment had challenged the partial approval on health grounds, asserting that the power station should not be approved at all due to both direct health consequences of mining and burning coal and due to the health effects of climate change, to...

Moolarben Coal Mine Stage 1 and 2 Modifications (April 2019)

April 17, 2019 - The mine at Moolarben has previously been approved to mine 18 million tonnes per year of production coal during the period until 2038. The original approval was granted in 2007, however, since that time climate change induced drought and altered fire regimens have become much more severe, and the urgency of taking swift action to reduce atmospheric carbon emissions is greater. This has been recognised in international treaties like the Paris accord, and in local legal judgements such as Gloucester Resources Ltd vs Minister for Planning 2019. What was assessed as being in the community interest in 2007 may no...

Doctors applaud rejection of Crib Point gas terminal

March 31, 2021 - ...storms and storm surges. The EES fails to address the implications and management of high-impact large-scale accidents that could have devastating consequences to the area. The EES does not adequately address the entire carbon emissions associated with the project. The EES uses the climate forcing activity of methane over 100-year time frame rather than the more appropriate 20-year time frame, given the already measurable health impacts of rapid global warming. The stated objectives of the project are flawed, as neither projected shortfalls of gas or lower prices may eventuate, and both can be resolved by other means. The project is...

Media statement: Climate emergency a public health emergency which must get top priority – this decade

September 14, 2021 - In an open letter to Prime Minister Scott Morrison, which comes just weeks before a major climate conference in Glasgow, Australian doctors have warned Australia must significantly lift its commitment to the global effort to bring climate change under control, to save lives and protect health.  The letter calls on the Prime Minister to commit to an ambitious national plan to protect health by cutting Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions, aligned to science-based targets, this decade.  The open letter was signed by the AMA, Doctors for the Environment Australia, (DEA) and many medical colleges: The Australian and New Zealand College of...
