Why Does Australia Still Use Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)? (Video)

By |2021-09-23T10:00:51+00:00August 25, 2021|Natural Gas|Comments Off on Why Does Australia Still Use Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)? (Video)

 Find out why Australia still uses liquefied natural gas (LNG) and what the country uses it for. In January 2020, Australia became the world’s number one exporter of liquefied natural gas (LNG). The news was welcomed and criticised in equal measure by the country. As the world starts to move away from fossil fuels and embrace clean energy, questions have arisen about whether LNG is still relevant and why it is such a controversial fuel. How is liquefied natural [...]

Methane Emissions in Australia: Who Is to Blame?

By |2021-08-26T10:39:53+00:00August 25, 2021|Cimate Change, Natural Gas|Comments Off on Methane Emissions in Australia: Who Is to Blame?

In 2020, as the Australian government talked up a ‘gas-led recovery’ from COVID-19, 25 eminent Australian scientists led the fightback against it. Natural gas is made from methane, a greenhouse gas far worse than carbon dioxide. The scientists wrote a strongly-worded letter to Australia’s Chief Scientist, Alan Finkel. It stated, “there is no role for an expansion of the gas industry”. They said that Finkel's support for the government’s continued investment in gas put Australia at increased risk of climate [...]

Which Gas Pipelines Should Australia Get Rid of First?

By |2021-08-26T10:58:17+00:00August 24, 2021|Cimate Change, Natural Gas|Comments Off on Which Gas Pipelines Should Australia Get Rid of First?

Since 2019, Australia has been the world’s largest exporter of liquified natural gas (LNG). But, in May 2021, US LNG exports overtook Australia's. Does this herald the turning of the tide for the gas industry? Either way, it certainly raises the question of how much longer gas pipelines in Australia will be needed. This is especially pertinent given the rush of countries and corporations committing to net zero emissions by mid-century in the past year. 137 countries have set targets [...]

How Can We Prevent Gas Leakages in Australia?

By |2021-08-26T11:00:09+00:00August 24, 2021|Natural Gas|Comments Off on How Can We Prevent Gas Leakages in Australia?

Over the past decade, natural gas has become an increasingly significant energy source. This is largely because it provides an energy source with less carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions than coal or oil. But, the climate advantages of natural gas can easily be lost due to methane leakages.  Methane is the primary component of natural gas. It also has 86 times the global warming potential of CO2 over the first 20 years that it is in the atmosphere. This means that [...]

Would Stopping Natural Gas Mining Halt Climate Change? (Video)

By |2021-09-23T09:59:58+00:00August 24, 2021|Cimate Change, Natural Gas|Comments Off on Would Stopping Natural Gas Mining Halt Climate Change? (Video)

This video addresses whether stopping natural gas mining would have an impact on climate change. The US and other countries are putting pressure on Australia to set more ambitious climate change targets. However, Prime Minister Scott Morrison is resisting their demands. Instead of setting out a ‘green’ recovery, his government is leading a ‘gas-led’ recovery to the COVID-19 economic downturn. This risks missing the country’s already insufficient climate goals and leaving stranded investments in natural gas. What is natural gas [...]
