Great Barrier Reef under threat

Great Barrier Reef under threat

Auckland journalist Steve Hart’s radio show (No 10) has just gone live on iTunes and at www.stevehart.co


This week’s big interview covers a proposal to dredge millions of tonnes of seabed soil in the Great Barrier Marine Park in Queensland.

Cherry Muddle of the the Australian Marine Conservation Society talks about the issues and implications of more coal transport ships using the area.
In the US there’s a campaign to update food labelling to show products that feature genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

We have an update on last week's story that featured Liz Barris of the People's Initiative, and a campaign to put warning stickers on mobile phone packaging. (Listen to show 9 for the back story).

The Royal Society of New Zealand says environmental problems are starting to threaten the country’s economic wellbeing, and that it should move to a green economy.

Jodie Hart also features from FilmFreak.co.nz to talk about the movie Elysium, and Pokey LaFarge.
