Senate Estimates: Analysis of risks to groundwater from CSG or shale is inadequate or non-existent

27 Feb 2015

Our chemicals regulator is only now starting to understand the risks posed to health and surface water by fracking chemicals. In fact they're not even studying the risks to underground aquifers or from shale gas. You'd think that'd stop the government, but disgracefully they've been handing out approvals like candy for years.

Senator Waters: Climate Change - Matter of Public Importance Speech

18 Nov 2014

I rise to speak on this matter of public importance about our Prime Minister's continued denial of the reality of climate change and his continued mealy-mouthed approach to meeting our global responsibilities to assist countries that will suffer from our profligate use of fossil fuels. I am from Queensland, where it has been obvious to all both observing and protesting against the Prime Minister's refusal to put climate change on the G20 agenda that he was totally out of step with the world and out of step with community expectations. Of course, when China and the US reached agreement on emissions targets the Prime Minister was totally gazumped and shown for the laggard and the spoiler that he is.
