Queensland's Coal addiction - talk by Guy Pearse



While browsing youtube I came across this presentation - Queensland's Continuing Carbon Addiction - by Dr Guy Pearse, a research fellow at the Global Change Institute of the University of Queensland, delivered on October 28, 2010.


You can also download a PDF of this talk from Guy Pearse's website which includes all the graphics and the full text plus footnoted references.

Guy worked for various Liberal politicians for many years and was a member of the Liberal Party for 19 years. Several yaears ago he became aware of the extreme power of the carbon lobby, but his attempt's to raise his concerns through his political connections failed, and he went public with the dirty politics behind Australia's response to climate change.

I have provided part 4 of the talk above as a summary, but if you want to watch the whole talk, the four parts are embedded below.
