Under-reporting pollution? It's not good enough!

Dear Minister,

An investigation by Environmental Justice Australia has shown coal-fired power stations may be dramatically under-reporting their pollution.

The investigation has revealed a serious, systemic problem.

In short, we have no idea how much toxic air pollution we’re breathing in from the coal-fired power stations that currently generate most of Australia’s electricity.

The National Pollutant Inventory provides the best available data on toxic emissions from power stations and other facilities, but it’s of limited value if polluters under-report their emissions.

The solution to this problem is independent, continuous smoke stack monitoring at all power stations.

Will you insist on continuous stack monitoring of coal-fired power stations so we know what we’re breathing?
