Technology entrepreneur environmentalist and Atlassian co-founder Mike Cannon-Brookes has identified four priorities he hopes the government will include in the federal budget, or that candidates will embrace in the upcoming election. These are:
electrifying homes to replace gas and petrol
investing in infrastructure and incentives for electric vehicles
making Australia a base for battery manufacturing and
building out transmission infrastructure to support renewable energy.
Minderoo Foundation's Global Plastic Watch is live today!GPW is a digital platform that maps the world's pollution in real time.This will help to identify which sites are legal or illegal and whether they are adjacent to water ways that lead to the ocean. This is cutting edge technology that combines satellite technology with machine learning and will drive better plastic waste management and reduce the estimated 10 million tonnes of plastic entering our oceans annually. https://globalplasticwatch.org
