Woodside

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.

The response to Woodside’s announcement that it is proceeding with its Scarborough gas field exploitation project has been swift, with protests and direct actions organised in Murujuga and Perth. Sam Wainwright reports.

"Cool fuel" was the groovy title of the Ed! supplement about natural gas in the April 5 edition of The West Australian that gets distributed to all our schools. To be sure natural gas is "cool" when liquefied. But nowhere among the topics covered, such as "Careers in LNG", "Power to You" and "West is best" is there any mention of natural gas as a significant contributor to catastrophic global warming. Nor does it mention that because of fugitive emissions in the production cycle natural gas is up there with coal as a carbon polluter.
