All of our activities and industries have differing, sometimes complex, health consequences. A striking example is in electricity generation, where ‘renewables’ and fossil fuel combustion have markedly contrasting implications for our health, now and in the future.

Along with the undoubted health and social benefits derived from accessible and available electricity, there are also inherent, often unrecognised or unaccounted, adverse effects from these same energy generation processes.

Greens Statement

The long-promised Muja coal-fired power station refurbishment is still incomplete, and Treasury has now revealed that costs have blown out over $100 million.

The Greens WA have hit out at the Government today about the cost blow-out and the unnecessary investment in fossil fuel generators.
