Woodside has no social licence for its Scarborough Gas Project, which threatens to unleash as much as 1.7 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere over its lifetime, writes Sam Wainwright.

Environment groups are concerned about the recent merger between Western Australia uranium hopeful Vimy Resources and Deep Yellow, Kerry Smith reports.

The Traditional Owners of the Tjiwarl native title claim lost their Supreme Court appeal to have the approval for the Yeelirrie uranium mine revoked on July 31.

The WA state Labor government announced on June 20 that it will not obstruct the construction of the four uranium mines in the state that have already received environmental approval. But it says it will block future proposals.

Toro Energy's Wiluna project, Vimy Resources' Mulga Rock project, and Cameco's Kintyre and Yeelirrie projects were all approved before Labor won the March election. Environmental approval for Yeelirrie was initially denied amid fears several species of subterranean fauna would be made extinct, but it eventually got the nod anyway.
