Theresa attended the Nov 4 workshop held by the Department of Communications, Energy and Natural Resources on the national white policy paper on energy. Overall she found the workshop “a well run event, plenty of interaction with online input as well as those in the room”. But the power of the energy lobby made itself felt too. In her blog she writes “My only hope is that more public participation will dilute the energy lobby willing to capitalise on our planets resources for their own profits while they pollute the land, air and water. It is true that as consumers we play a part but we are not really given alternatives. They are knowingly altering the climate of the planet our children must live on. They are destabilising the ecosystem that must support future generations. For what? Jobs? Money?”.
