Breaking Queensland's Coal Addiction

At the same time as the world balances on the precipice of climate change, Qld is rapidly increasing it's addiction to coal. Qld coal already contributes 30% of Australia's greenhouse gas emissions - and the Bligh government is celebrating the forecast tripling of Qld coal production by 2030. Now a new coal port is proposed for pristine Shoalwater Bay in Central Qld.


Can we allow business-as-usual when it threatens the planet? Can coal ever be "clean"? How can we build an alternative, sustainable future?


This is an audio recording of a presentation given by Dr John Mackenzie --Friends of the Earth climate collective -- to a August 6th Socialist Alliance Forum held in Brisbane.
