Ge­orge de­fends dy­ing in­dus­try

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

GE­ORGE Christensen will stop at noth­ing as he sup­ports a dy­ing in­dus­try.

As Adani’s true colours shine through, Ge­orge is quick to the de­fence, spit­ting fire on those op­posed to the de­vel­op­ment and slam­ming green groups as they ex­pose the truth.

Namely Cherry Mud­dle, a com­mu­nity cam­paigner for the Marine Con­ser­va­tion So­ci­ety who has seen first-hand the im­pacts in­dus­tri­al­i­sa­tion and cli­mate change have on the reef and the sur­round­ing area.

Along with her fel­low Whit­sun­day lo­cals and thou­sands of Aus­tralians, Cherry has ded­i­cated her life to pro­tect­ing our oceans and the liveli­hood of those who de­pend on it.

The rea­son why things are not run­ning so smoothly on the min­ing front is be­cause a mi­nor­ity with loud voices in­sist on sup­port­ing an un­sus­tain­able energy fu­ture and ig­nor­ing sci­en­tific ev­i­dence that claims Adani’s pro­ject poses great risk to our en­vi­ron­ment.

If the Com­mon­wealth Bank, along with many fi­nan­cial in­sti­tutes, can­not jus­tify sup­port­ing the pro­ject be­cause it’s fi­nan­cially un­vi­able, why is Ge­orge Christensen? Ste­vie Richards, Can­non­vale
