Powerful lobby groups put on notice over climate change
Some of Australia's most powerful lobby groups have been put on notice over climate change with BHP, the world's biggest mining company, setting standards that require them to advocate for Paris agreement-aligned emissions reductions and stop backing energy policies that favour fossil fuels over renewables.The new standards  say the associations must ensure their lobbying is balanced – prohibiting them from emphasising the cost of climate action without considering the cost of inaction – and ensure their lobbying does not attack or promote one energy source or commodity over another, such as advocating for coal or against renewable energy. https://www.smh.com.au/business/companies/bhp-puts-power

What A Gas! Zero Emissions + 20% Growth Gain
The CSIRO is commercialising seaweed product found to accelerate cattle growth and cut their hefty greenhouse gas emissions to near zero. A potential long-term saviour for the global cattle industry, which stands accused of being a bigger greenhouse gas producer than all nations apart from China and the United States. A significant body of research shows adding even small amounts of the seaweed product to cattle diets can cancel out methane emissions – through burping and flatulence – while the reduction in digestion waste results in faster growth rates (an average of 20% increase in field trials). Source AFR 10/8/20
