China and the world

Posted on by in Letters


As a recent visitor to the region I read the copy of CVI 5/6/19 World Environment Day. I congratulate this paper’s environment content but when I read “China hosts world environment day” I was a bit sceptical.

China doesn’t have a good environmental record and proclaiming their theme of air pollution for W.E.D made me put pen to paper.

The fossil fuel industry will slowly (but hopefully) and surely will be an energy thing of the past. Australia needs to get its act together a lot better and quicker than what’s currently happening; and selling more coal is only adding to the problem, not the solution.

The Morrison led coalition by allowing Adani the go ahead (but not yet) to open the Charmichael coal mine (one of the largest in the world) is so hypocritical to meeting green house emission targets? Renewable energy on this planet is what will save us folks.

… the Independent would like to ask for your support. The community is reading our paper more than ever and embracing the content we produce, but advertising revenues across the media as a whole, are falling. Unlike other news organizations we do not charge for our publication – so, to keep our community connected and deliver the local news to your door we would like to ask for your help..... to keep the Independent bringing you all the local community news takes a lot of time, hard work and people power, But we do it because we believe our presence matters – who else tells it how it is, where it is, and what it is.

If you like our journalism, if you like the community news, if you like our sports coverage we would love it if you could help fund it, our future may depend on it. For as little as $5, you can support the Independent – Thank you.
