THIS is to congratulate Premier Palaszczuk on her confirming her previous election promise not to use any public funds for the controversial Adani coal mining project.
As expected, the dinosaurs of the fossil fuel industry are screaming for her scalp and repeating unsubstantiated claims about the economic costs of her decision.
With thousands of farmers having their water supplies put at risk, with the 65,000 tourist
and fishing jobs on the Reef under threat, and the cumulative impact of climate change increasing every year, this decision should be hailed as a triumph for science and environmental security.
Why didn’t the Four Corners report on Adani stop this project?
The conflicts of interest with several board members of the NAIF, and the right wing’s blinkered ideology to stop any renewable energy supplies, should be rejected.
We hope the public will finally move on to embrace the 21st century and support truly sustainable energy sources that are all around us.
More, healthier jobs will come when we seriously
embrace renewables, for the benefit to us all, and not just a small group of mining executives who are terrified of having their assets become stranded and eventually banned. — Jonathan Peter, Airlie Beach
