Obviously Mr Clarke has missed the point. The protest action against the Adani coal mine was to highlight the long-term consequences of this short-term profiteering.
At risk is our children’s future, and the future of the children in India as well. Perhaps he is the one brainwashed, brainwashed by the propaganda of the rich and greedy, flashing hypnotising pixels at him from his TV each day.
The science is clear. Our government must stop operating on behalf of the coal industry, and work to serve the people. Take note of the concern and actions being taken all around the world to combat climate change. Note that the Indian government has ceased approving coal-fired power plants and is undertaking a massive push for renewable energy.
I was there on that day in Byron, standing up with other goodhearted, informed and caring parents and grandparents. Mr Clarke, your misleading comments are not helpful at a time when intelligent conversation and action are needed.
