SATURDAY 2nd AUGUST AT 10 AM
FOLLOWED BY MARCH TO VICTORIA SQUARE
South Australia has only 4.6% agricultural land outside of pastoral areas. Our farming
production areas are being invaded by shale gas exploration in the South East of SA,
mineral exploration and proposed mining for iron ore, copper and other minerals on
Eyre Peninsula and Yorke Peninsula. Exploration is also occurring off our coastline.
With unchecked Climate Change South Australia is expected to have a warmer and
drier climate. This is going to add to the challenge facing our agricultural, horticultural
and viticulture industries without the loss and contamination of land for food production
land and the critical water supplies be they sourced from above or below ground level.
Further, South Australia does not need any extra fossil fuels to meet the State’s energy needs.
Giles Parkinson ( http://reneweconomy.com.au ) “South Australia has the highest
concentration in the world of variable renewables at 40%. SA could be 100% renewables in the
next 10 years.”
