Louise Sales (FoE Emerging Tech Project) & Silvia Ribeiro (ETC Group) discuss environmental, safety and green washing concerns of global proportions over ongoing open air testing of a geoengineering technique known as cloud brightening on the Great Barrier Reef.
These tests are part of a $326 million project funded by fossil fuels corporates including BHP, Rio Tinto, Orica, Boeing & Qantas. They contravene a number of transnational conventions and moratoriums that Australia is a signatory to—including free, prior & informed consent of more than 70 First Peoples owner groups.
