 Environment: Council's Climate Change Report

Councillor Peter CummingDear Wynnum Manly Residents
Two weeks ago Brisbane City Council's Civic Cabinet received the final report of the independent Climate Change and Energy Taskforce. The taskforce was chaired by Professor Ian Lowe who worked with out city's sustainability experts Mr Scott Losee, Mr Jim McKnoulty and Dr John McEvoy.
Council has not yet assessed, nor endorsed the report - 'A Call for Action'.

The recommendations of the report will be debated by Council on 30th April with a view to adopting a Council policy on addressing Peak Oil and Climate Change.

However, before this occurs it is vital we receive community feedback on the recommendations. As Councillor for Wynnum Manly I am very interested in your comments on the document.
A link to the report can be found on Council's website - Click Here! (4.8Meg PDF).

Climate change will have a big impact on Brisbane residents in years to come, with the CSIRO predicting our average temperatures in a few decades will resemble those of Rockhampton, with more extreme weather events likely,and a range of other impacts of global warming on our lifestyle and environment.

It has been disappointing that our city's major newspaper did not cover this important news last week for our city as a whole to help stimulate awareness and debate about climate change. I will be putting this news out to our local papers.
I also encourage you to send this on to other locals who you think may be interested to read this document.
I look forward to hearing from you and will be happy to forward your comments on to Council officers.

Thank you and Happy Easter.

A sausage sizzle and drinks would be provided following the tree planting. Council would also give away plants.

 Environment: Bay to Benefit from Wastewater Treatment Upgrade

Brisbane City CouncilWork will soon commence to upgrade the Wynnum Wastewater Treatment Plant to improve the environmental performance and benefit the health of Moreton Bay. The Brisbane Water Enviro Alliance (BWEA) will undertake the upgrade to the plant on Tanker Road at Lytton, between now and September 2007. Chairperson for Water and City Business Committee, Councillor John Campbell, today said the upgrade would continue the excellent work being done by this Alliance to improve the health of our city’s waterways and ultimately Moreton Bay.

“BWEA has already completed an upgrade to the Sandgate and Wacol plants, which has resulted in a reduction in the volume of nitrogen in the treated wastewater from 500 kilograms per day to just 90 kilograms per day – an 80 percent reduction,” Cr Campbell said.

 Environment: Water - Wynnum West Takes The Prize

Councillor Peter CummingCouncillor Peter Cumming said the suburb of Wynnum West had taken the unofficial Wynnum Manly Ward Trophy for lowest water usage in the latest round of water consumption and savings figures released by the Brisbane City Council.The figures compared water usage for the 12 months from 1st January to 31st March 2006 with usage 12 months earlier.

The "competition" table read as follows:
1st Wynnum West 441 litres per day on average ( down 32.94 % )
2nd Wynnum 463 litres ( down 26.47 % )
3rd Manly 469 litres ( down 25.9 % )
4th Lota 503 litres ( down 23.34 % )
5th Manly West 507 litres ( down 35.72 % )

Councillor Cumming said while Manly West had the highest level of consumption it had also produced the highest level of savings. He urged Manly West residents to continue their efforts to reduce consumption in an effort to climb the "league" ladder. The next comparison would become available around late July when the latest meter readings became available.

Councillor Cumming said city wide figures showed acreage suburbs leading the shame table with five suburbs still using over 1000 litres a day. Burbank was the worst offender with 1325 litres a day average usage whilst Pullenvale with 1027, Rochedale with 1016, Brookfield with 1010 and Chandler with 1001 were not much better.

The program involves local residents assisting Council by planting new street trees. Council digs the holes beforehand. Residents assist with planting and watering and maintenance.

The second group of streets to be planted will be in Manly West and involve the following streets – Greenside, Delsia, Raeburn, Rickston, Estelle, Sue, Mercia, Greta and Andes.Volunteers are requested to meet at the park on the corner of Raeburn Street and Curtis Streets, Manly.

 Environment: Council Assist Schools to Recycle

Councillor Peter CummingBrisbane City Council and Education Queensland have joined forces to encourage greater recycling in schools. Councillor Cumming has urged schools in the area to use a “how to“ handbook available on Council’s website to increase recycling knowledge among young people.

“School students will be better informed to recycle plastic bottles, aluminium and steel cans, paper and cardboard, fruit juice and milk cartons,” Cr Cumming said. “Council will then be able to recover recyclables more effectively in its fortnightly kerbside collection.”

The handbook is now available to all schools, via the Council web site and it will be regularly updated with feedback from schools. The handbook offers a step-by-step guide to establishing a recycling system, along with educational games and activities for students as encouragement and to teach them better recycling habits.

Cr Cumming said this Brisbane-wide initiative followed a pilot study of nine Brisbane schools last year to identify the barriers and success factors in the introduction of school recycling.

 Environment: Fish farms accused of spreading disease

Bayside Environmental NetworkFish farms accused of spreading disease 15 July 03 Courier Mail
FISH farms such as the one proposed for Moreton Bay increase the potential for spreading disease and depleting wild fish stocks. The findings, from a world-first study, were released as Premier Peter Beattie hinted that the Sun Aqua sea-cage farm might not proceed because it faced regulatory obstacles. "This project will require a significant, a very significant, a very, very significant and if you have missed the point, a very, very, very significant hurdle . . . to be successful," Mr Beattie said.

Fish biologist Tim Dempster said his studies on a sea-cage kingfish farm at Port Stephens in NSW and on Mediterranean farms showed they attracted vast numbers of wild fish which fed off uneaten fish food and faeces.

 Environment: Trojan Horse to get the larger proposal accepted

Bayside Environmental NetworkAt Last! - the Environmental Impact Statement for a Sea Cage Finfish Aquaculture Project in Moreton Bay has been released!
Most readers will now know what this project is all about and that we have been waiting since 2002 for this EIS to be released. In the executive summary section of the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the above project the consultants have stated that "During the EIS process the original proposal was amended to ensure that the project has negligible environmental impact. In particular, cage design, net design, farm output and the siting of the Farm Area and its Operational Sites have all been modified to minimise the environmental impact of the proposal to a level where it can be said that the operation will have no detrimental environmental impacts."(bold added) (Sunaqua EIS 2003)
As we are well aware, there are few, if any, activities undertaken by humans which have "no detrimental environmental impact".

 Environment: Say No! To Sea Cages

Bayside Environmental Network “Fish Farms Become Feedlots Of The Sea “ Organic Consumers Association quote “Boycott farmed fish until the industry changes many of its practices. At least, they want the farms to switch to solid walled pens with catch basins to isolate farmed fish and their diseases, pests and waste from the environment. The ideal solution is to have the farmed stock raised in land locked tanks “

Quote from Wynnum/Manly Councillor Peter Cumming re Fish Factory in Moreton Bay, “I am writing to advise that I oppose this project and have written to State member, Paul Lucas, advising him of my opposition".
