Geoff Ebbs uses Twiggy Forrest and Barnaby Joyce, in their respective cow paddocks, to tell the truth on greenhouse gas emission. “Always an instant conversation killer,” Geoff says.
An irreverent overview of the topic, Geoff points out a few home truths. Denial is not a river in Egypt. Per-capita emissions put Australians up there with the citizens of Dubai as gas-guzzling greedy gutses. And the Australian government is still following a script devised by US coal companies in 2004.
On a more useful note, Twiggy’s $50 billion hydrogen project is just the sort of systemic change we need to make a post-carbon economy a real possibility.
