The Federal Court has just rejected the Carmichael mine because Environment Minister Hunt failed to consider the impacts on two threatened species.
The mine has been rejected by the court – now its time for Minister Hunt to reject it for good.
Will you tell Greg Hunt to reject the Carmichael mine once and for all?
Here’s our top three reasons why it should be rejected:
- As Australia’s largest coal mine, it will make an unacceptable contribution to greenhouse gasses and climate change
- The Carmichael mine will use over 12 billion litres of water per year, draining precious underground water sources
- The Carmichael mine will not yield the promised jobs or royalties for Queensland. Net jobs for the project (taking into account job losses in other industries) will be as low as 1464 and Adani has exaggerated income from royalties from the Carmichael mine.
