Environmentality 10 October 2012

Dear Environmentality Listeners,

Today was a very relaxed show, with co-presenters Smokey, Jaime and Sarah enjoying the opportunity to play lots of great music and discuss news and current events of relevance to the environment.

Banksia Gardens are hosting a Sustainability Workshop, held at 71 Pearcedale Pde Broadmeadows on the 17th of October 6-8pm.  Brainstorming is taking place and working groups are being formed about environmental initiatives for the area.   This is a great opportunity to get involved in environmental projects relevant to Hume and the North West region.

Some of the topics discussed on the program included:
  • New modelling of the Murray Darling Basin floodplains show irrigators might not have to give up as much water as first thought, at 3,200 gigalitres a year as opposed to 4,000 gigalitres. This is good news towards coming to an agreement amongst basin stakeholders.
  • Protests continue about the gas pipe proposal by Woodside Petroleum at James Price Point, an environmentally sensitive area. The area is a breeding ground and thoroughfare for humpback whales and other marine life, and has the longest chain of dinosaur footprints in the world.
Environmentality is open to ideas about topics to discuss on the show and people we can interview.  Do you know of an environmental program that needs promoting or someone of  interest working in the area of sustainability?  It may be your neighbour, it may even be yourself!  Leave a message on this blog or text message 0447777989.  We would love to hear from you.

Music played today included:
Julian Cope - Reynard the Fox
The Pale Saints - Baby Maker
Dave Graney - Playin' Chicken
Temper Trap - Sweet Disposition
Ainslie Wills - Stop Pulling the String
The Jezabels - Mace Spray

Listen to the show!
