Yet again we have the Prime Minister for Coal, Tony Abbott and his doomed government attacking the legal rights of everyday Australians. This week he moved to wipe out long held legal avenues available to you and me in the protection of our precious environment.
The Carmichael coal mine development was stopped because Tony Abbott’s minister didn’t adhere to the law. Environmental guidelines are there to make sure irresponsible development doesn’t happen. That’s an absolute truth.
Another absolute truth is that Tony Abbott and his chaotic government have already destroyed in excess of 2,000 jobs in the renewable energy sector. It’s a policy position that is horribly out of step with the majority of Australians who know investing in renewable energy makes good main stream economic sense.
I can’t wait for Tony Abbott, his Coalition MPs, and their vested interests mates to lose the reins of power in Australia because they are undermining our future with their toxic dogma.
