Global warming is driving demand for green tourism destinations, according to former Queensland premier Peter Beattie.
“There is a silver lining to global warming in Queensland, and it is not just developing clean coal technology to clean up energy generation and a more environmental way in which we inhabit this planet,” Beattie was quoted telling a forum in the US by AAP.
“Global warming not only demands environmental answers but will see an increasing desire for clean, green tourism destinations which are environmentally friendly and carbon neutral.”
He was quoted saying that an increasing number of American and European tourists would demand eco-friendly tourist activities and accommodation.
Beattie is now a visiting scholar at the University of South Carolina.
