A number of native title holders in Queensland's Galilee Basin set up a blockade near the Adani Carmichael coal mine, in an attempt to reclaim the land from the mining giant.
The Great Barrier Reef is dying, and only politicians can save it.
Despite new resolutions to curb climate change and save the reef, Australia has re-approved dredging of the coal port at Abbot Point.
After being re-approved last week, Queensland's Carmichael Mine looks as environmentally fraught as before.
It's all about the economy, there's not much word on the environment or bikie laws, and Tony Abbott has been a complete no-show.
The expansion of Abbot Point will no longer mean dumping dredge spoil on the reef. Instead it's to be dumped in a wetland, which creates a new set of problems.
The company building a massive coal port in Australia near the Great Barrier Reef has a troubling environmental record in India.
This week the Federal government approved what is expected to be Australia’s largest coal mining effort. Simultaneously, coal prices are dropping and other Australian mines are closing. Oh, also the reef is dying.
