The greenhouse paradox

Harris, A. (1989) The greenhouse paradox. The West Australian : Big Weekend Supplement, 27 May 1989. p. 1 [Publication] [Special Collections]


Newspaper article by Alex Harris.

A criticism of the Australian Government's response to the greenhouse effect. The Government pledged to form a greenhouse coordinating committee to steer a national environmental response, but also committed to several environmentally disastrous industry projects, like the construction of two power stations. Conservationists face the battle of a globally coordinated approach to the greenhouse effect which is not a popular suggestion amongst industrialists.
