"New documents reveal the Northern Territory government knew it could not meet
a key recommendation to reduce the climate risk of its planned massive
expansion of gas production, and asked the Albanese government for help.

Federal climate change officials in turn admitted Australia did not have any
existing policies that would meet the recommendation in full.

Advocates say the documents are proof the Northern Territory government lied
when it claimed all the conditions were in place to give the green light to gas
production in the Beetaloo Basin, an area of vast shale reserves 500km
south-east of Darwin.

Analysis suggests full production at Beetaloo would create a “carbon bomb” of
1.4bn tonnes of total emissions globally."
