carbon capture and storage
The January 2015 issue of the Environmental and Planning Law Journal includes four topical and timely articles on various aspects of environmental and planning law, including the 2015 climate change agreement, carbon capture and storage, reformed Queensland environmental planning legislation, and managing water resources in Australia.
The latest Part of the Environmental and Planning Law Journal includes the following articles: “Emerging legislative regimes for regulating carbon capture and storage activities in Australia: To what extent do they facilitate access to procedural justice?” – Guy J Dwyer; “The scope of a 2015 climate change agreement: A mixed top-down/bottom-up approach to achieve universal participation” – Anna Celliers; “Regulatory obesity, the Newman diet and outcomes for planning law in Queensland” – Philippa England; and “The way forward: Are further changes to Australian water governance inevitable?” – Maureen Papas.
The latest Part of the EPLJ includes three interesting articles dealing with different aspects of environmental law. The first article comes from Dr Nicola Swayne and Angela Phillips and presents a critical analysis of the current and proposed carbon capture and storage legal frameworks across a number of jurisdictions in Australia. The second article is by Dr Andrew Sneddon and considers the ways in which Australia’s courts and tribunals have responded to Aboriginal objections to proposed mining and development activities on the grounds of potential adverse impacts to “sacred sites”. The final article, by Andrea Bassett, explores the inherent conflict of openly presenting sites to the public while also fully protecting their World Heritage values.
