Faced with climate disaster, the Australian government plans to open one of the world’s biggest coal mines


Recommended Posts

While Australia is reeling from the devastating bushfires, the country’s government is set to open one of the world’s biggest coal mines. Truthout reports:


Instead of combating climate change, Morrison is opening one of the world’s biggest coal mines in Queensland called Adani, despite his government’s awareness of the environmental damage that Adani will certainly cause. A 2017 non-governmental organization report to the Australian government clearly states that, “The mining and burning of coal from this project is likely to generate an estimated 4.7 billion tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions. This will be more than 0.5% of the remaining global carbon budget.”


Why do we never learn?

And why don’t we treat climate change as the existential crisis it actually is?
