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.
