This started with a proposal to move the Ultimo Powerhouse Museum here. The case against is summarized here made so little sense, that the only reason for the move appeared to be a setup for land-grab by developers, as high rise estate redevelopment in Sydney is worth hundreds of millions. Now the original site is to be revamped, the ultimo museum is to stay where it is, and a new additional facility is planned to open on the same proposed site in Parramatta. The original site is to get a $500 million dollar "facelift". The Parramatta site is likely to be subject to increased flooding risks due to climate change.
Australian Politicians cannot say no to new gas fracking and new coal projects, while large numbers of Australian people are saying no to them. The obvious conflicts of interest between people and government are here now.
Only the advanced corruption of government riddled with cancerous cash
for exploitation, is capable of going against the plain simple
scientific obviously truth. Australian government politicians are not genuine people-representative politicians, they are running wholesale shopping outlets for mining corporations,
with the staff on the cash registers being seduced as the future employees of the
mining corporations. This is an illegal and immoral government, with its head in the greenhouse gas fumes.
The conflict between unsustainable, dirty-coal energy and our present global warming emergency is exemplified by the Adani Coal Project, and other multiple coal mine planned for the Galilee Basin in Queensland. The Australian Labor Party has understandable leniency towards coal interests. Unions want mining jobs, and state Governments want mining revenue. Many more people want a future, and need this planet to be livable. The more our planet warms the less livable it is. The death of the entire great barrier reef is only one step further. The Greens oppose new Coal mining projects outright, and will be knocking on doors in electorates to hurt Labor where it matters.
