Interested in your take on this story Tom -
Kimberley carbon project worth millions could be lost, traditional owners fear
It’s a good question. I have been on the outside partially listening in. Advice to the Communities I work with have come from Government Institutions, like TAFE, Environment Departments, Ag Departments and the rest of bureaucracy. They have “pushed the carbon angle” very strongly, so it’s the belief of the Native Title holders to believe them, for some cash.
My advice to them was to disbelieve that bureaucratic rhetoric and plan projects that survived without the ‘carbon credits’ windfall, but said to them, if anyone’s stupid enough, milk them for what you can. It would serve them right. Some pastoralists have already had their fingers and their bank accounts, burnt. I will be following the next step with interest. With the Senate off the rails with egos to show off, who knows what will happen. We don’t need it, but don’t tell anyone.
I haven’t read the article yet, but I may have more comments after reading it. Stay tuned.
Here’s mine, our Broome’s LNG fired Power Station. The bush surrounding it is flush with growth.
