Public health expert Prof Melissa Haswell asked an important question at Santos' 2020 annual general meeting which was held online due to Covid-19: How will the oil and gas giant protect our communities, especially our unborn children, infants and children, from their current and proposed gas projects?
The question however went unheard. We captured it in the video Prof Haswell sent to Santos:
There is mounting evidence of the risks of gas to human health and planetary health.
Foetus', infants and children are vulnerable.
As health professionals, we can do much to help the transition from planet-wrecking fossil fuels to clean energy sources. We can let our Super funds know we want them to invest our retirement money for public good.
