Kevin Rudd and Peter Garrett - the "Traveston Test" of Labor's environment and water platform


 Kevin Rudd and Peter Garrett are going into the next election with a policy platform on the environment which should make the federal decision on the proposed Traveston Crossing Dam very simple.  Just say no.  The project does not align with the policies that Mr Rudd is trying to put into place, and the project does not align with the objectives of the Environmental Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act that Mr Garrett administers.  Here is a link to the federal labor environment platform they claim will govern their actions in the future.  The first real test of these words is the "Traveston Test". What decisive action will these two men make between now and the 18th of November on what is arguably the most significant case to ever come before the EPBC act in its history? Australians expect the government to provide reliable, sustainable water supplies that do not destroy their rivers - the proposed dam at Traveston Crossing is the antithesis of this expectation.  

Here is a link to a selection of good recent radio interviews about this federal decision.
