Government Of Queensland Will Ban New Oil And Gas Developments In The Lake Eyre Basin

The government of Queensland will ban new oil and gas developments in the Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre basin’s rivers and floodplains – belatedly delivering on a nine-year-old election commitment to reinstate protections for the state’s pristine channel country. The state’s premier, Steven Miles, will on Friday announce new environmental regulations for the basin, which is among the world’s last unaltered river systems. https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2023/dec/22/queensland-to-ban-oil-and-gas-drilling-in-lake-eyre-basin-rivers-and-floodplains

    A good idea to stop fossil fuel exploration and halt the development of all new oil and gas fields.

          The decision by the Queensland government to ban new oil and gas developments in the Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre Basin is a positive step in the fight against climate change. The move, fulfilling a nine-year-old election commitment, reinstates protections for the state's pristine channel country. The announcement of new environmental regulations for the basin, home to one of the world's last unaltered river systems, reflects a commitment to conservation and sustainable land use.

              A bold decision by the Government of Queensland that is going to secure aquatic life in Lake Eyre Basin and in addition reduce the reliance to oil and gas in Queensland.

                  @johnte_ndeto it is the only sure way to stop use of fossils and aid to the transition to clean and renewable energy.

                    Just as everyone was knocking off for Xmas, the Australian Government approved a massive new gas field that will provide free gas to notorious tax cheats Shell, and add half a BILLION tonnes of emissions to our atmosphere. 🧵👇 info.nopsema.gov.au/environment_pl… https://twitter.com/MarkOgge/status/1738394179900960990?t=6FmPJJ8-CDUSamtQzJbYpQ&s=19

                      @richard_s how I wish you could post this as a warning, the government of Australia must be ashamed for pulling the globe behind by approving such a retrogressive project that is going to hurt the environment.

                      The need is to nearly zero emissions by using NikolaTesla's valvular_conduit Tailpipes he intended for ICEngines 90yrs ago, these remove >99% of gases, soot/aerosols and trap wasteheat, the principle counter-flow scales clothesdryers to coal smokestacks w/draft engr. Shelved 90yrs didn't help. Fwiw ⛽️

                              Glad that the Queensland government will no longer regularize new oil and gas investments as they seek to reinstate their pristine channel country.

                                @esther_wanjiku_785 this is a great regulation to aid in stopping use of gas and oil and instead support clean means of energy in Queensland.
