Full of Gas! Presented by Environment Victoria at Sustainable Living Festival This Saturday

Environment Victoria presents Full of Gas! at the National Sustainable Living Festival this Saturday at Federation Square. 

From the EV website:  The climate crisis is here – the last thing Victoria needs is a massive, new fossil fuel development in our own backyard. Energy giant AGL plans to turn Westernport Bay, a wetland sanctuary south-east of Melbourne, into a massive gas import terminal.

The project would lock in decades of dirty gas, which could come from fracked sources.

And it would leave behind a legacy of local environmental destruction. Hear from community leaders and campaigners, and find out how you can help stop this. 

Save Westernport campaigner Louise Page will be speaking about AGL’s plans for Crib Point!

WHERE: Off the Grid tent at Sustainable Living Festival, Birrarung Marr, Fed Square
Speakers:

  • Bruce Robertson, a gas analyst at the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis, will explain why the idea of importing gas to Australia won’t solve anything.
  • Local campaigners from Save Westernport  will talk about the environmental damage this project could do in the sensitive Westernport ecosystem.
  • Nick Aberle, Campaigns Manager at Environment Victoria, will explain what we can do to stop this project, and what it means for Victoria’s transition to clean energy.
