Liberal party in Victoria have their heads in the sand on climate and energy transformation underway in Victoria and Australia. They are pushing an ideological line that just exacerbates an energy crisis.

So much for all the excuses provided by Deputy PM Barnaby Joyce, QRC CEO Ian Macfarlane and Adani itself about the contamination of a wetlands area.

Matt Canavan meets Gautam Adani for jobs in a project that will largely be automated and be a climate bomb, that even Westpac bank thinks is a bad investment out of step with business and government climate commitments under the 2015 #ParisAgreement

Excellent interview with Mark Butler on Adani mine and criticism of Federal government with lots of facts on ABC Insiders. Why then does Westpac Bank have a better policy on export coal than the ALP? Why won't the ALP oppose the mine?

An important business announcement from Westpac bank effectively ruling out their financial support of Adani Carmichael coal project, and pointing them to funding more renewables over fossil fuels.

Climate activists are this morning occupying the Melbourne offices of Downer EDI, a mining infrastructure company, to protest a $2 billion contract for developing the Adani Carmichael coal mine in the Galilee Basin of Queensland. The mine is widely seen as a climate carbon bomb and has no social license to be built and operate.

A tragic #shark incident in Western Australia on Easter Monday, but reacting with drum baits and culling is not the answer. Sharks are an important marine apex predator that assists in ocean carbon cycling and carbon sequestration: helping us with climate change. Human/shark incidents are statistically extremely rare given extensive human use of coastal and surf zone environments for swimming. We don't think of sharks as our friends but they are crucial in helping us to mitigate climate change.
