Australian greens in a pickle

Environmentalists in Australia are being forced to choose between climate change and protection of endangered species.

A fortnight ago federal Environment Minister Ian Campbell sparked a media frenzy when he blocked a proposed $220 million wind farm at Bald Hills in Victoria's Gippsland - ostensibly because it threatened the endangered orange-bellied parrot.

This story chronicles how wind power projects are stalled in the land down under, and growing demands for electric power will be met with new nuclear facilities.
