& trashed the environment

Guest speakers:

THURSDAY 17 SEPT 7PM @ ETU 41 Peel St, South Brisbane

Adani’s proposed Carmichael coal mine in the Galilee Basin, Queensland, is experiencing divestment from big banks, a strong message of caution from the Australian Federal Court and concerted pressure from environmental groups and traditional owners to stop its development. But Carmichael is only one of many new coal mines planned or in process in Queensland. While federal and state governments continue to tie themselves into these dirty projects, many sectors of society are registering the problems with coal – from exploration to exportation, to exploitation, pollution and depletion.

Join us to hear about the social, environmental and political issues of coal, reaching from your backyard to global politics and back again.

Is coal good for democracy? Is coal good for anybody?
