Regulating greenhouse gas emissions from coal mining activities in the context of climate change
Christensen, Sharon, Durrant, Nicola, O'Connor, Pamela, & Phillips, Angela (2011) Regulating greenhouse gas emissions from coal mining activities in the context of climate change. Environmental and Planning Law Journal, 28(6), pp. 1-54.
Current approaches to the regulation of coal mining activities in Australia have facilitated the extraction of substantial amounts of coal and coal seam gas. The regulation of coal mining activities must now achieve the reduction or mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions in order to address the challenge of climate change and achieve ecologically sustainable development. Several legislative mechanisms currently exist which appear to offer the means to bring about the reduction or mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions from coal mining activities, yet Australia’s emissions from coal mining continue to rise. This article critiques these existing legislative mechanisms and presents recommendations for reform.
