Not done with yet
DONE deal? Yeah right.
That is the message from activists when it comes to the Adani Carmichael mine, with the Australian Conservation Foundation launching a legal challenge to a Federal Government decision to bypass an impact assessment of planned water use by the mine.
Speaking after Adani’s announcement last week, ACF CEO Kelly O’Shanassy said the fight to stop the mine would continue.
“The only responsible response is to stop Adani and keep Galilee Basin coal in the ground,” Ms O’Shanassy said.
“Adani’s announcement doesn’t mean this dangerous coal mine is a done deal.
“There are numerous regulatory hurdles, approvals and management plans to clear.
“The Stop Adani movement will fight this proposed mine every step of the way. There is too much at stake.”
Ms O’Shanassy said elected representatives now had a clear choice on Adani.
“Do they support opening up a massive new coal basin right when the world’s climate scientists desperately warn we must rapidly transition away from burning fossil fuels to halt global warming?” Ms O’Shanassy said.
