Click to download: ep.37. Pulp mill, resource wars + more
Earlier this week Environment Minister Peter Garrett confused us all when he announced that the Gunns Limited pulp mill had failed to win approval from the government as it needed to meet 3 marine impact requirements. However later it was confirmed that the pulp mill can actually begin construction as the construction works were approved after environmental assessment. Meanwhile, Gunns has just served another writ on 13 more activists for an action that occurred at the Triabunna woodchip mill in December last year. Third Degree's Libby King spoke with Ula Majewski, one of the activists who has been served a writ by Gunns, and also Paul Oosting, who has been campaigning against the pulp mill with the wilderness society.
This week's Guest: Antony Loewenstein is a journalist and author of My Israel Question and The Blogging Revolution. He joins us to talk about world shortages in resources such as oil, coal and water, and the impact this is having on global politics and the environment.
Presenters: Nick Hollins and Libby King
