Gautam Adani and Coal
We are receiving information about Adani who appears to be a billionaire rogue. However he is not the real problem.
What we must really fear is that our government and the Queensland Government are supporting the rogue.
They appear to be preparing to help Adani to finance his project.
It seems that Adani’s Australian projects are seriously in financial trouble.
Could this mean that taxpayers money would be used?
The Australian Trade Minister, Steve Ciobi had Trade Rules altered so that mines could be financed this way.
If that mine goes on, Australia’s reputation will be lowered. Worse than that. Adani’s group has been given free use of the underground water for the use of the mine for 60 years. Worse still. If we look into the future, using the information from the past, there is a very strong case that the entire country surrounding the mine will be less able to produce the numbers and quality of the present cattle herds.
That applies to the water and the trees and the feed.
Unless something is done now to refresh world climate, the future is looking bleak.
The Australian and Queensland Governments will tell you that a large coal mine would supply opportunities for employment.
That may be so, but in the long term the ruination of hundreds of square kilometres could mean less opportunities.
Here is another occasion where politicians are making short-term decisions with an eye to the next election.
The opportunity is here, now, to make power from renewables.
Surely planning now for a clean way to create electricity is better than a filthy, unhealthy coalmine. Let’s stir up the politicians. It’s time they considered other people. Ron Neilsen
