A year ago today I stood in front of "Environment Minister" Greg Hunt asking him to keep coal in the ground & move on from fossil fuels.
I stood in the rain with a bunch of concerned locals, scientists and activist groups as he looked up at the sky, open mouthed and lamely beiged off questions regarding dredging and its impacts to the reef, told bare faced lies about budgets and spendings, twisted facts and scientific findings into useless strings of meaningless words, and lied some more about minimal impacts, zero effects and an Australian economic boom evolving around #coal
Since then the #greatbarrierreef
has been hit for the second year in a row by mass coral bleaching, effecting almost 97% of coral - purely caused by warming of oceans caused by burning of #fossilfuels
This has to stop!! Tonight, in #Cairns
is the premier of the #documentary
Guarding The Galilee, which talks of the need to protect sites from #mining
companies such as #Adani
The proposal for the #Carmichael
mine will mean the #heritage
and protected native land is at the hands of monsters with mega-tonne machines who will stop at nothing to turf out those dirty black rocks.
Everything is at risk here, and nothing seems to be enough to make a change.
Say no to Coal today, and think about how you can make easy and money saving ways to switch to renewables.
