The sight of little children cheering on the Stop Adani Mine on the front page of last week’s Echo is truly nauseating.
In the process of brainwashing and manipulating their children I am sure those parents have not discussed the deaths of over one million Indian children each year through the ingestion of polluted air in their homes from cooking and heating fires. http://www.who.int/en/news-room/fact-sheets/detail/household-air-pollution-and-health
That the Adani coal is to be shipped to India to fuel new power plants to provide electrical power to those in need is of no interest to these parents. That children cannot attend school as they are needed to search for twigs and animal dung to fuel their home fires, who cares, they are going to die anyway.
That if Australia does not provide the coal it will be sourced elsewhere? So what, this is all about feeling good about ourselves and caring less for others.
But wait I forgot, the Green movement who initiates these protests believe the world is overpopulated so isn’t it good that a million little Indian children die each year to help keep the population increase down.
Go outside and play with your new signs kiddies and leave Mummy and Daddy to feel so good about their first world selves.
