Two North Queensland teenagers have presented Federal Environment Minister, Sussan Ley, with critical new evidence and strong legal grounds to revoke approval of Adani’s Carmichael coal mine.
They have done their homework when the federal government has not. Acting on their behalf, EJA lawyers obtained independent evidence from climate and economic experts.
This new evidence clearly demonstrates that Adani’s mine will increase global warming and cause significant damage to our Great Barrier Reef, contradicting reasoning for former Environment Minister Greg Hunt’s approval in 2015.
Minister Ley now has strong legal grounds to use her discretionary powers under Section 145 of the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act to revoke the mine’s environmental approval.
So, Federal Environment Minister Sussan Ley, will you consider the expert evidence and revoke approval of Adani’s giant Carmichael coal mine?
