Floodplains, planning, privatisation and energy

Wednesday, 26 October 2022 - 9:00am

 This week, City Limits is joined by community activist from Melbourne's west Helen van den Berg, and climate researcher, activist and author David Spratt

 Helen takes us through the ecology, history and policy surrounding the Maribyrnong river and adjacent developments which have contributed to destruction by recent flooding. She talks to us about groundwater, natural floodplains, poor planning, sell-offs and more.

 Later, David joins us to talk all things energy, from global energy trends related to the Ukraine war, thoughts about last night's budget in regards to climate change and inflation, and the privatisation of Victoria's electricity  generators, retailers and grid. Explaining, in his words, how privatisation led to the artificial division of our grid, and what that means for us.

Wednesday 9:00am to 10:00am
Urban environment issues, analysing government services, both federal and state and local campaigns.


Kevin Healy, Zeb Peake & Karina Aedo-Aguilera
