Barnett Browse shift angers EPA - The West Australian

Barnett Browse shift angers EPA - The West Australian:
He said some of the axed conditions were important to ensure companies were held to high levels of accountability.

There was also less pressure on the proponents to cut emissions without the conditions.

It was particularly important with Browse, he said, because the project would lift WA's total greenhouse gas emissions up to 52 per cent above 2007 levels if it reached capacity. "There's still a role for the State Government in maintaining public confidence in the environmental performance of proponents, particularly when they have large greenhouse gas emissions," he said.

  1. Smells like an el cheapo set up to try and make the EPA look in some way independent of Barnett.A totally futile exercise.


    RIO and co. have secured a 2 year extension on the Kimberley Bauxite mine.It is likely they will try some scheme that does not involve building and operating a smelter.


    Now where could these areas be? Hmmm...
