STAND WITH SCIENTISTS FIGHTING ADANI'S CARMICHAEL COAL MINE

Despite the overwhelming evidence that fossil fuels are killing the Great Barrier Reef and making many extreme weather events worse; despite the emphatic thumbs-down from the finance sector; and despite the growing awareness of the serious health impacts of coal, the proposed Carmichael coal mine staggers on, zombie-like, amid reports it has been offered a deferment of A$320 million in royalty payments.

Can you sign on to our open letter to help us deliver our important warning to politicians?

HELP SCIENTISTS TO STOP THE RISKY CARMICHAEL COAL MINE 2

Adani’s Carmichael coal mine is fundamentally at odds with protecting the Great Barrier Reef from climate change. It’s also an incredibly risky financial investment with a false promise of jobs. Yet politicians have pledged $1 billion in public funding to the project. We’re a group of Australian scientists & citizens calling for no public funding for Adani’s mine.

Dear Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and Minister For Northern Australia Matthew Canavan,

I urge you to consider the insurmountable economic, health, and climate risks posed by the Carmichael coal mine and withdraw all Government support and funding immediately.
