Voters of Townsville!

Voters of Townsville in the Queensland State election, speak up!

ADANI IS A MORAL ISSUE.

If developed, Adani’s mega-mine would open the Galilee, which would lead to significant damage to the climate system by itself.

Townsville already knows the impact of climate change. You have some power to stop things from getting much worse!

Townsville knows the potential impact of climate change:

-          Water reserves are at 15% now, but droughts and hot days will become more frequent

-          The CSIRO predicts that cyclones will become more powerful

-          A dying Reef

-          Loss of coastal infrastructure from storm surges and sea level rise

-          Pacific islanders and Torres Strait Islanders will lose their islands

-          A potentially inhospitable climate in one or two generations.

Adani’s proposed Carmichael mine and rail line pose an unacceptable risk. In Court, Adani admitted there would only be at most 1,464 jobs at any one time. For this, Adani would:

  • Flood the world’s markets with cheap coal to compete with renewables
  • Lead to greenhouse pollution equal to that of whole countries such as Bangladesh and Malaysia
  • Potentially waste $1bn public money on a failing, shonky foreign corporation with a reputation for defaulting on loans
  • Use large amounts of Artesian Basin groundwater needed for agriculture
  • Steal homelands from the Wangan and Jagalingou Aboriginal people

 Think before you vote.
