April 16th, 2008- CFMEU, WWF, ACA, TCI, CCS?! (Carbon Capture and Storage campaign)

On April 16th 7 looooong years ago, at the peak of fervour around Carbon Capture and Storage (if  you don’t know about it, don’t find out – ignorance is bliss), four unlikely bedfellows got together in Australia. The Australian Coal Association, the Construction Forestry Mining Energy Union, the Climate Institute and World Wildlife Fund

called on the Federal Government to establish a National Carbon Capture and Storage Taskforce to combat climate change… [to] be charged with developing and implementing a nationally coordinated plan to oversee rapid demonstration and commercialisation of 10,000 GWh of carbon capture and storage (CCS) electricity per year by 2020.”
