WHALES WILL WELCOME FERGUSON’S EXIT - BROWN
22 March 2013
Energy Minister Martin Ferguson’s exit is good news for the environment, former Greens leader Bob Brown said in Hobart today.
‘This is a good omen for the Goolarabooloo people and the people of Broome who oppose Woodside Petroleum’s proposed $45 billion gas factory at James Price Point on the Kimberley coast. Ferguson has insisted the factory go there even though it is a more expensive option than processing the gas out at sea in the Browse Basin,’ Brown said.
Ferguson’s anti-green pigheadedness will not be missed in Canberra or the Kimberley, Brown said. He ignored the fact that Woodside’s project threatened the world’s biggest humpback whale nursery with extinction.
