Two whales simultaneously entangled in shark nets off SEQ coast today

Two whales have been entangled in shark nets on Queensland's coast today, one at Kirra Beach on the Gold Coast and the other at Marcoola Beach on the Sunshine Coast, Humane Society International says.

This is very serious. Last year expert scientists published a warning via The Society of Chemical Industry: ‘blue hydrogen’, using natural gas, was shown to be a fossil fuel industry scam with continuing carbon emissions. The methane emissions negate the carbon capture, and the emissions are WORSE than just burning the original natural gas. If it is allowed to proceed, the IPCC carbon emissions danger limits will be exceeded and climate change will be more catastrophic.

‘Green hydrogen’, using renewable energy electrolysis of water, is a safe, valid means for industrial, and fuel, chemical requirements.

The fossil fuel industry is trumpeting ‘green hydrogen’ as a little side distraction so it can use existing equipment and facilities for the vast bulk of production of ‘blue hydrogen’. Once they have their foot in the door it will be ‘greed before green’ as usual… but worse!

For planetary survival we must not let deceptive ‘blue hydrogen’ projects be set in stone – humanity’s gravestone.
