We learn this week that the Indian company, Adani, which is extracting coal at the great Barrier Reef is to be charged by the Indian Government with crime and corruption. Adani has been accused of also utilising offshore havens.
Australians are well aware of the great tragedies surrounding the health of the Great Barrier Reef. They are also aware that the Turnbull government has promised a billion dollars of taxpayers’ money to support the infrastructure of Adani.
Given these facts I now wait with bated breath to see what Mr Turnbull and his government will do with taxpayers money. Will he have the guts to stand up to this company with a principled representation on behalf of all taxpayers, or will he keep peddling backwards with inane ‘polly-speak’?
More to the point when the global movement is now divesting/investing in alternative technologies will the Turnbull government keep up the old white boys (with big bellies) sham?
If Adani gets the billion dollars we can say that we are all well and truly…(that rude word.)…in Australia to say nothing of the environment!
Lets hope Turnbull has the guts to reject this project given the current situation.
