Shame on you
I CANNOT see how the mayor justified an expenditure of $10,000 on such a brief trip to India when the visit, in spite of other reasons being given, was primarily aimed at ensuring Adani goes ahead with Australia’s largest coal mine and the world’s largest coal terminal 19 kms from the Great Barrier Reef.
And this at a time when initial bleaching reports are already coming in on our doorstep with some of the hottest ocean temperatures we’ve experienced.
It’s time politicians were held accountable for destroying the world’s largest living organism.
All this for around 1000 jobs – and a company that refuses to commit to a figure.
A company who continually promises jobs for locals and does not deliver.
It’s time the other story about the Adani company gets an airing in the media.
There are 69,000 tourism jobs at risk compared to a handful to be involved in a mine polluting 60 million tonnes a year for 60 years into an already heavily polluted atmosphere.
Shame on you.
