Labor talks up hydrogen
The Australian Government will partner with the Northern Territory Government to build a jetty to facilitate the transport of goods and services in and out of the Middle Arm precinct.
Yesterday on ABC’s Insiders, Federal Minister for Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government, Catherine King, announced the Middle Arm project will not be used as defence infrastructure and will not receive any additional Federal funding.
Lines attributable to Greens spokesperson for resources, Yamatji-Noongar Woman Senator Dorinda Cox:
“It’s great to see Minister King talking about hydrogen on Insiders yesterday, rather than investing in more coal and gas furthering the climate crisis.
“The Greens are looking forward to the Middle Arm project focussing on hydrogen to develop green, sustainable projects, rather than relying on gas from the Beetaloo and Barossa projects.
“Federal and state governments should be focused on investing in cleaner, greener renewable energy sources and creating a globally competitive, sustainable export industry. Australia has every opportunity to be a renewable energy superpower.”
