Polluter Watch

It seems polluters will say anything to try to weasel out of paying for their pollution. So a few organisations have teamed up for Polluter Watch.

This details some of Australia's biggest polluters, some of the claims they have made, and how those claims are untrue. It includes individual critiques of RioTinto, TRUenergy, Alcoa, BHP Billiton, Bluescope Steel, International Power and Woodside.

Long-time readers might remember some of those names from when they were exposed for claiming one thing to the government (that a price on pollution would be disastrous) and the exact opposite to their investors (that everything is fine and dandy).
