Australia may be embarking on a “new carbon future”, but coal remains our largest energy export and by far our cheapest and most abundant source of power generation.

In our cover story, we look at our long-standing love affair with coal and examine what, realistically, is required in renewable energy investment if we are to replace coal as our pre-eminent energy source.

Also in the Winter Issue: does the spate of high-profile miscarriages of justice spell the end of the unquestioned acceptance of forensic science in the courtroom? We reveal the whereabouts of Australia’s forgotten collection of censored books. And we investigate the quiet revolution in depression treatment that is making symptoms melt away, sometimes within hours. 

For all the stories, go to the Uniken website.
