Our living wonders - Living Wonders
The LIVING WONDERS website is a vault of information on the climate impact of 19 coal and gas projects. Proposals for these 19 projects are sitting on the desk of Tanya Plibersek, minister for Water and the environment.
The dramatic question is HOW can she approve a new gas or coal project if she digs into this vault of living wonders and sees the climate disruptions caused by more coal and gas?
A small group called The Environment Council of Central Queensland has started a legal intervention under a rarely used section of the National Environment laws, to ask Tanya Plibersek to reconsider the 19 proposals.
Through their lawyers at Environmental Justice Australia they have made it easy for the minister to access scientific research, much of it paid for by the Government.
