Follow the Money: federal budget recap

In the federal budget announced last month, A$52.9 million was allocated to expanding Australia’s gas industry, and an extra A$8.7 million was slipped to NSW’s Vales Point power station.

The announcements have added new urgency to community efforts to protect the Beetaloo Basin from fracking in the NT and are meeting with resistance from renewable energy advocates across the country.
 
This episode we hear from Dr Brad Smith, campaign director at Nature Conservation Council about resistance to Vales Point upgrades, Dan Robins from Protect Country Alliance about the campaign for the Beetaloo, and Nicky Ison, Energy Transition Manager at World Wildlife Fund about what the budget offers for the renewables industry.
 
Guests: 
Dr Brad Smith, campaign director, Nature Conservation Council
Nicky Ison, Energy Transition Manager, World Wildlife Fund
