Dr George Crisp - Doctors for the Environment Australia - Current Campaigns and Projects - DEA

Dr Crisp tells us that all the advances in health achieved in the last 100 years are set to be wrecked unless we stop the advance of  Global Heating. Even with 1.1 degrees of warming, look at all the stress on our emergency services around the world, the stress on water supplies, sanitation and nutritious food. All of these underpin our health and are under threat with each fraction of a degree we continue to heat the atmosphere.

 

Dr Simon Quilty  - How a rethink of emergency care is closing the gap, one person at a time (theconversation.com)

Dr Quilty also spoke to me during the week about the IPCC report. The  projected temperatures expected in Central Australia, exactly where the gas will be exported from, will be 30+ days beyond 40 degrees. He says we do not need any more research. It's not a biomedical solution. "For frequent presenters to Katherine Hospital, poverty and illness go hand in hand. When you are living in an over-crowded house, and the A$20 power card(link is external) feeding the air conditioner expires on a 43℃ tropical day, when your heart, lungs and kidneys are chronically malfunctioning and the insulin in the fridge slowly warms, the only free number you can call for help is “000” for an ambulance trip to hospital." It was the most memorable thing I learned  in the week. COVID has been  a wake up call to fix the gaps in our society regarding secure housing,  and effective communication to all groups. Life as we know it demands  that we build back better, not led by gas, oil, coal or land clearing. I hope to bring you that interview in the future.

FURTHER VIEWING

For the impacts of gas drilling:Listen to  the story of Neil Stanley in Kogan Qld.Neil's Story - Lock the Gate Alliance  QGC has never been made accountable for the destruction of sacred sites used for initiation.He says "We want justice for the site and an end to the destruction of cultural heritage by gas mining companies seeking short term profits"

There are many campaign to  ban further gas exports from NT Don't frack the NT - Seed (seedmob.org.au)

Using the information from the latest IPCC report and the demands from the International Energy Agency we  are armed to prevent the gas pipeline proposed in Central Australia. The pipeline from Tennant Creek to Darwin would be parallel with the Future minded solar power line which supply the Darwin Katherine Grid and then be sent by under sea cable to Singapore.
