Harvesting lignite at Loy Yang

A visit to Morwell and the La Trobe Valley with the Greens Ellen Sandell MP and Adam Bandt MP to discuss Hazelwood, Australia’s dirtiest power station and it's impact on the health of our community and environment, not least in the Latrobe Valley.

 

We were briefed by TomDoig on the history of coal in the Valley, and the minefire and community concerns by Voices of the Valley. We discussed some of the politics, health impacts and possibilities for transitioning to a clean economy with sustainable jobs, involving the local community in transition planning.
