No Time for New Coal Mines: Protect Bylong Valley

BZE Community Radio Show: 10 October 2016: Podcast:

bze-podcast-graphic-2016-10-10-1

We hear from:

  • Bylong resident Jodie Nancarrow  President of the Bylong Protection Association.
  • Then Bev Smiles will give us the bigger picture, climate impacts, giant voids left filling with toxic water all over the Hunter.
  • Tim Buckley from the Institute for Energy Economics & Financial Analysis will give us the wider financial picture of coal and market prices.
  • Lastly we speak to Jonathan La Nauze from Australian Conservation Foundation about their court challenge to the Adani mine.

Are these the dying days of coal? If so , why are greenfields sites like Bylong Valley being opened up for new coal mines?

Even when the #NoNewMines mantra is catching on and Indonesia and China have imposed a moratorium on themselves, Australian communities and aquifers are being ruined.  Many people have said the Adani mine  will never go ahead, but we don’t want to get complacent. We hear from the locals, the  climate action groups and a top notch financial analyst.

Thanks also to Mike Seccombe of  The Saturday Paper (1st Oct) for giving us the latest.

Please forward this promo to anyone who will take action.

ELECTRIC VEHICLES & FEED IN TARIFFS

This show was broadcast on Mon 19th September 2016

The future is electric” – Larissa Waters “Conventional cars have to go” – Dr Stephen Bygrave “Imported cars and the oil to run them are a large part of our trade deficit”  – Dr Gary Ellem

Dr Gary Ellem from Newcastle University is a futurist. He talks about young people designing electric bikes and racing them, the future work of coal affected communities and how driverless electric vehicles will improve our lives.
The BZE Electric Vehicle report was launched in Brisbane and we bring you an edited extract. Dr Stephen Bygrave, the Hon Mark Bailey MPProfessor Karen Hussey (University of Queensland) and Senator Larissa Waters describe in detail how the transport sector’s impact on global warming is being rapidly reduced: cutting import duty on EVs, giving free parking and recharging to EVs, electric buses . . .  are all ways this is already happening, including soon in Queensland!
Tom Nockolds from the Community Power Agency talks to Vivien about what will happen when the Feed In Tariff is gone. Can electricity be democratised, decarbonised and affordable?

160912_community-graphic

Today on BZE Radio join us at NorthcoteTown Hall in Melbourne for an excerpt from an inspired and inspiring event held on August 11th called Creating a Climate for Change (thank you Melbourne Playback Theatre).

PANEL

Architect Rob Adams returned to his University in South Africa and found that without building more  they had massively increased the number of students by multitasking the rooms. With climate change in mind he talks about how cities can do the same.

Lucy Best is a campaigner. She engages with the community to bring renewable energy solutions to low income residents. Her fascinating talk shows how personal commitment and ingenuity break down barriers.

Stephen Bygrave brings examples from around the world to show how the time is coming when petrol -fuelled cars, energy intensive buildings and coal fired power will be things of the past.
