Peter Garrett increases carbon emissions

Filed under: global warming,Peter Garrett,water — ralphbuttigieg @ 9:21 am

Peter Garrett has decided to ban Queensland from building a dam to provide Queenslanders with much needed water. The only alternative seems to be  energy intensive desalination plants. Just how much extra CO2 will be released Mr Garrett?

PRIME Minister Kevin Rudd has backed his environment minister’s interim decision to reject a controversial dam in Queensland. Peter Garrett said he made the interim decision to reject the controversial $1.8 billion plan to dam the Mary River because evidence showed it could kill off endangered species.

The Queensland Government has criticised the decision, saying it will now have to look at building an expensive desalination plant.
