Adani un­nces­sary

NewsMail - - YOUR SAY -

THE Adani coal mine is as un­nec­es­sary as it is toxic and should it be­come a re­al­ity will be com­pared to the cane toads by fu­ture gen­er­a­tions.

The price of coal power in In­dia al­ready is far be­yond the means of the vast ma­jor­ity of In­di­ans to even con­nect to the grid, let alone to pay the on­go­ing bills.

The only win­ners in In­dia, apart from Adani, would be the multi-na­tional cor­po­ra­tions who would build mas­sive fac­to­ries cre­at­ing more en­vi­ron­men­tal dam­age and ex­ploita­tion of the work­ers whose pay is al­ready well be­low the poverty line.

That some of our politi­cians sup­port this in 2017 is sim­ply ap­palling and un­sus­tain­able and will be al­ways con­demned by fu­ture gen­er­a­tions. — MAX TANZER Elliott Heads
