Carmichael Coal Project/lawfare

The Carmichael Coal Project promises 10,000 jobs in Central/North Queensland with enormous benefits to the economy of Queensland and contributions to State and Federal revenue through taxes and mining royalties.

Though proponents Adani have cleared every hurdle and legal challenge, and we now expect work to commence later this year, green activists continue their attacks on the project. These environmental activists have used the reef as a weapon in their real end game which is to end coal mining.

If Northern Australia is to develop and continue to prop up the Australian economy, legislation preventing the use of lawfare needs to be reintroduced to the parliament and passed by both houses.
