Executive business and residential clients in the Australian

Executive SummaryAs technology and industries have developed, human lives have become more handy and convenient. However, these developments are now resulting in destroying nature and environment that now globally is at a crisis stage. Every year, destroying nature is being more critical and many scientists have warned the governments and organizations about global warming phenomena. Australia grew economically and strengthen the nation power because of Australian’s great natural resources. However, overproducing and consuming results in critical nature destroying and affecting Australian environments. According to ‘Garnaut Climate Change Review’ (2006), Australia can be at a hazardous level of their environment issues in a very near future. However, AGL Energy Ltd is an Australian listed public company that elaborates on both generations of electricity and gas for residential and commercial usage. With several recent news and reports state that AGL is resulting in the destroying of the environment such as air pollution and greenhouse gas impact etc. This report will present a brief background of AGL Company and analysis of their impacting in air pollution and the government’s reaction and their responsibilities. Also, this report will provide some solutions and recommendations.Introduction The Australian Gas Light Company was established in Sydney in 1837. AGL was the second biggest organization to list on the Sydney Stock Exchange. The organization slowly expanded into power and various diverse areas. 25% claimed by AGL Energy, ActewAGL gives electricity power, natural gas, and media telecommunication administrations to business and residential clients in the Australian Capital Territory and south-east New South Wales.Thermal power, natural gas, wind control, hydroelectricity, solar energy, gas storage and coal crease gas are the sources utilized by AGL Energy to produce energy from control stationsAGL guaranteed in August 2017 that it had more than 3.6 million private and business client accounts crosswise over New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Queensland. It has been reported that AGL entered the residential and commercial gas market in Western Australia in July 2017. It has huge investments in the supply of gas and electricity and is Australia’s biggest private proprietor, administrator, and engineer of a sustainable power source.Analysis Of Environmental Problems In Australia Australia is helpless against the impacts of global warming, anticipated for the following 50 to 100 years on account of its broad dry and semi-dry zones, an already warm atmosphere, high yearly precipitation changeability, and existing pressure on water supply. The landmass’ high fire hazard builds this powerlessness to change in temperature and atmosphere. Forecasts estimating the impacts of a dangerous atmospheric deviation or global warming on Australia declare that a hazardous global warming will adversely affect Australia’s environmental condition, economy, and various communities. Australia has been assigned in one of those nations which are most vulnerable to environmental change, as per the Stern Review and others, due incompletely to the significance of its agriculture and the unmistakable quality of its coast. The effects of environmental change in Australia will be unpredictable and to some extent questionable, however expanded prescience may empower the nation to defend its future through arranged relief and adjustment. Moderation may lessen a definitive degree of environmental change and its effects, yet requires worldwide arrangements and collaboration, while moderations can be performed at national and neighborhood levels.AGL’s Influence On EnvironmentAccording to a research done by the Clean Energy Regulator and Josh Creasor, the campaign coordinator of 350.org, AGL energy is the biggest polluter on Australian soil by a huge margin. As AGL plans on burning the brown coal until 2050, it has already more than doubled its carbon discharge over the past 3 years. These researchers believe, when Australians are facing the impacts of environmental change in shape of the recent extreme heat, it is very much likely that AGL energy is playing the most significant role in enhancing climate pollution in Australia. The probability of an environmental impact happening can be portrayed as far as its likelihood is concerned. Overlaying this likelihood is the need to perceive that a level of uncertainty might be related with conceivable environmental impacts, especially amid the underlying risk evaluation process, which is a project started by the AGL energy itself in an attempt to prevent or at least create awareness of environmental issues. Where there is a scientific vulnerability, a careful approach will distinguish a more elevated amount of hazard giving a preservationist evaluation.Each identifiable effect can be allocated an event rating, between ‘rare’ through to ‘relatively certain’. In streamlining the conceivable effects with the end goal of a situation risk evaluation, a component of subjectivity should likewise be presented.An environmental risk evaluation of the Project was embraced to advise the Environmental Assessment process. This section plots the key discoveries from this appraisal as they identify with natural hazard, and points of interest the more extensive procedure used to complete the environmental hazard evaluation for the proposed Project as displayed in this environmental assessment.Issues that were raised by the key organization stakeholders of AGL energy were thought to be critical in helping to characterize the level of environmental hazard related to the project. The issues include:Air quality related issues,Greenhouse gas impacts,Traffic and transport related impacts,Surface and groundwater impacts,Visual impacts,Commotion related impacts,Ecological impacts,As a result of climate change and increased climate variability in Australia, Australia likely to see more frequent and more extreme weather events including heat waves, storms, cyclones, and bushfires; higher temperatures, a continued decline in rainfall in southern Australia, and decreases in water supplies.Government Regulations And Their ActionThe survey from Climate Institute has reported that 77% of Australians believe climate change is happening and 90% believe the federal government has the responsibility on this issue, Mayer (2016). Another report presents that Australia generates only about 1.5% of global emissions. However, on a per person basis, we are one of the world’s largest emitters of greenhouse gases. The per capita CO2 emissions that are, around 27 tons of CO2-e per person, are near twice the OECD average, and more than four times the world average.The Australian government is making bills to regulate organizations to reduce their destroying nature behavior with raised taxes and many strict regulations. The Clean Energy Regulator is a government body responsible for administering legislation to reduce carbon emissions and increase the use of clean energy. Carbon Farming Initiative, National Greenhouse, Energy Reporting Scheme, as well as the Carbon Pricing Mechanism Renewable Energy Target, is administered by The Clean Energy Regulator.Recommended SolutionsAround Australia, industries and people are taking action now to prepare for these impacts. Mainly there are two solutions as external and internal. External includes technical issues and regulations. Engineers are developing  a new way to produce the energy without destroying the nature. For example, wind-based energy, filtering the gas emission and reducing the current factories or resource. For internal, the campaign. The campaign regards reducing the consumed energy, use sustainable energy and any other alternatives. It has proven that Australian government’s water waste campaign resulted in incredible outcome after their aggressive campaign. Therefore in this matter, reporters highly recommend an aggressive public campaign.                                        (Example of Air pollution campaign from Pinterest)Government needs to create strong, eye-opening and catchy posters to awaken the general public on how air pollution is critical in their life and to upcoming generations. All posters can be placed in public areas where it is easy to access. Also the air pollution issue (not only air pollution, includes all other environment issues) needs to be more public awareness via media, debates or by being taught in school’s syllabus. Environmental problems in Australia are becoming more critical and hazardous, yet, solving this issue is not a significant priority in our lives.ConclusionAs global warming phenomena has been highlighted, Australia government needs to regulate the anti-environment activities with the involvement of the general public.
