The state of Australia: our environment

The state of Australia’s environment is a real worry – and we have the report cards to prove it.For the past two decades, successive federal governments have received a series of independent, five-yearly State of the Environment reports. I was appointed to chair the first national assessment, which delivered its findings in May 1996. And what we concluded then – a lifetime ago for an 18-year-old reading this today – is even truer now: Some aspects of Australia’s environment are in good condition by international standards … Unfortunately, [this] report also shows that Australia has some serious environmental problems.

    Yes we do have some severe challenges. I don’t believe in subsidizing other nations supposedly to finance them into non-polluting initiatives only to see them rip off our money and put it into the bank accounts of their political leaders though. That certainly happens.
