Gunns 20 case over
Back in December 2004 Gunns limited served writs to 20 people and organisations. The case became known as the Gunns 20. The other the years that followed suits against the defendents were gradually dropped, with the final four cases dropped in January 2010. We spoke with Adam Burling from the Huon Valley Environment Centre about the case.

Taking the polluters to court
After the end of the Gunns 20 case, we take a look at turning the tables on the polluters. Peter Gray and Naomi Hodgson currenly have a case before the NSW land and environment court against Bayswater coal-fired Power station at Muswellbrook. They are arguing that Bayswater does not have permission to release the carbon dioxide emissions from the coal it burns into the atomsphere. Jess spoke with Peter Gray.
