  • A new report by a leading climate change expert has found that proposed gas development in the Lake Eyre Basin could increase Australia’s total annual emissions by 60 per cent.
  • The Queensland component of the gas is in the Cooper-Eromanga Basin, and Professor Lowe found that if just 25 per cent of the resource was recovered, the emissions it would produce would be “incompatible” with Queensland’s emission reduction targets.
