Three cheers for a Canadian Watch Dog.

It is the Alberta Energy Regulator.

From The Sydney Morning Herald – The SMH.

‘West Australian mining billionaire Gina Rinehart is fighting to keep her North American expansion dreams alive as she launches legal action to overturn the rejection of her $800 million coal mine in the Rocky Mountains of Canada by a provincial environmental watchdog.’ It is the Alberta Energy Regulator. See the SMH article by Peter de Kruijff 27/7/21.

22 Apr 2021 — During today’s Leaders Summit on Climate, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, announced that Canada will enhance our emissions reduction target under .

Meanwhile – in Western Australia, Gina Rinehart is in a video to the students of her old school insisting ‘humans do not cause climate change’. See the article in the SMH October 7th 2021.

She dares to call all the evidence ‘propaganda’.

She has never heard of the Industrial Revolution?

She could not care less about the impact of acid rain on forests.

Humans are responsible for the impact of deforestation.

Glaciers are warming

She ignores the facts of chemistry.

The output of carbon dioxide from coal-powered energy

Fossil fuel corporate giants are interested in their profits.

Has she ever cared about the impact of our waste on land and sea?

Do mining giants ever ‘rehabilitate’ properly?

Rejects the greenhouse effect?

Australia’s Minister for the Environment has just approved the third new coal mine development in a month.

Australia does not have a national environmental watch dog.

It does not have a national policy. The Prime Minister has set aside the report by Graeme Samuel on the ‘not fit for purpose’ National Environmental and Biological Diversity Act passed by John Howard’s government back in 2002. Take note. They removed the word ‘Conservation’, a critical element in the Act passed in 1999!
