LET’S NOT WASTE OUR FUTURE

Posted in environment, fremantle by freoview on February 11, 2015

 Paul Connett, Professor Emeritus in Environmental Chemistry at St Lawrence University in Canton, New York will share his expertise and scientific knowledge about incineration impacts and safer zero waste solution. 6pm Tues 17th Feb 2015 Conference room Lotteries West House, 2 Delhi st, West Perth.

Dr Connett is also author of Zero Waste Solutions: Untrashing the Planet One Community at a Time.

This public forum is brought to you by The Alliance for a Clean Environment and Zero Waste WA.

The WA EPA has approved four waste to energy incinerators for WA, despite claims that these technologies will increase recycling and provide renewable energy. The reality is that they are the dirtiest and most expensive form of energy production, releasing more ghg’s per unit of energy than both coal and gas, as well as toxic persistent organic pollutants, for which there is no safe level of exposure.

Where these plants operate elsewhere in the world they undermine the recycling sector by having to burn recyclable materials to maintain commercial viability. This is not the sustainable waste management future WA needs or deserves.

RWANDAN PRIEST LECTURE AT NOTRE DAME UNI

A message from Fremantle Notre Dame University:

Mercy, Forgiveness & Reconciliation: 20 years after the 1994 Rwandan genocide, lecture by Father Emmanuel Nsengiyumva

Tuesday 24th June 2014, 11:00am
Tannock Hall of Education Lecture Theatre, ND4/101
 
Father Emmanuel is currently the parish priest of Nyamata, a small town located about 30kms south of the Rwandan capital of Kigali, which experienced some of the worst horrors of the country’s April 1994 genocide. He devotes himself to helping the community of Nyamata to move forward in its healing process, firmly believing that, with the help of the Catholic Church, the Rwandan people can continue to forgive, heal, reconcile and unite. There is hope, he says of greater reconciliation between the perpetrators and the survivors, who he knows are all “children of God”.
