Greens leader says blaming Queensland coal companies for floods not opportunistic.
Its a bit unfortunate Mr Bob Brown did not include the fledgling LNG Industries in Queensland. They should also shoulder some of this responsibility.
Yes, maybe natural gas-fired power plants have lower carbon emissions than coal-burning ones, and yes many people have been fooled by the clean green energy deception that it pushed by multinational corporations with their million dollar advertising campaigns.
But everyone also contends that the total carbon impact of LNG -- including the energy to extract it, liquefy it, ship it overseas, re-gassify it, then send it to market -- and the thousands of additional air flights to cater for the fly in fly out workforce - makes it a far bigger polluter.
The oceans are warming because of the CO2 levels and so is the NO Industrialisation of the Kimberley Campaign.
