This is a serious one as I’m a big fan. Bob, Sea Shepherd, the local group Environs Kimberley and just about every other opponent of Woodside’s Kimberley gas factory say they don’t oppose it in principle, just the location.
But it’s going to be Australia’s biggest greenhouse polluter, spewing out up to 39 million tonnes of CO2 each year.
Obviously they reckon they’ve got more chance of stopping it in Broome if they aren’t seen to be opposing it altogether, but how has Bob resolved this dilemma, the Kimberley coast versus the global climate, for himself?
To me it shows the weakness of the environmental movement in Australia, that we mostly only go for small victories we think we might win against Big Money.
