What Do We Want?
WA is one of the world’s largest exporters of pollution and greenhouse gases all because of WA gas production. The extraction and processing of gas is highly polluting, and additional pollution occurs when the gas is actually used.
Currently none of the big gas projects such as Chevron’s Gorgon Project have regulations to limit the damage from this pollution. There are also no targets here in WA for mitigating the global effects of our gas production.
Existing sites in WA with projects up for approval already have more gas than we can manage to export and still keep our emissions under control. It’s time to create a different resource economy in WA — one that can build long-term sustainable jobs and be kind to the environment.
