Catalyst - Carbon Country
It's bushfire season in western Arnhem Land: Aboriginal people are reviving traditional burning patterns; Scientists are measuring how ecosystems are affected by fire; The developers of a gas refinery need to reduce their greenhouse emissions. What do all these people have in common? Carbon.
In the first carbon trading agreement of its kind in the world, a company has struck a deal with a government and Aboriginal communities about greenhouse gas and fire management. In an exclusive report, Catalyst examines the science that underpins this agreement, and how carbon connects a remote bush camp with an industrial giant.
