Westacott calls for growth, ignoring its impact on climate change

A discussion today on Radio National featuring the Chief Executive of the Business Council of Australia, Jennifer Westacott, reduced me to tears (metaphorically).
Chief Executive of the Business Council of Australia, Jennifer Westacott.
The 15-minute discussion was loaded with claims, from Ms Westacott naturally, that whatever problems Australia faced those difficulties could be resolved through reduced taxation for businesses and a focus on growth.

Never was it hinted at that growth as understood and promoted by Ms Westacott is exactly the root cause of a worsening climate system that will derail the aims and goals she so cherishes.
