Sandy Loyall, Bangalow

On 24 July, Professor Sandra van der Laan of the the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA) declared that Adani Mining, ‘…looks like a corporate collapse waiting to happen’ and, ‘is in a very fragile, even perilous, financial position.’

Surely our government wouldn’t dare to plunge billions of hard-earned, taxpayer dollars into such a lemon?

    • Jack. You should be able to access ADANI updates on their Carmichael Project. They are online. Interesting reading.
      Now that all approvals are in place and construction has commenced the project has real market value.
      The fact that ADANI is able to fund the project internally shows the financial grunt this organisation has.
      As for the Academic Left and Professor van der Laan “forensic accounting” comments…….? I think her comments speaks volumes of her bias and/or limited knowledge of delivering large infrastructure projects.

  1. You know there are about another 5 mines following Adani say Carmichael.
    Gina Reinhardt is reportedly close to getting all her approvals. Even Clive Palmer has a tenement at Carmichael although his is a long shot. The 3rd world is screaming out for what Australia has taken for granted for decades
    …..a stable Base Load Grid.
    Australia’s Grid is being vandalised as we speak by erratic “renewable” generation being allowed into the Grid.

    • As it happens the third world isn’t screaming out for Australia’s coal anywhere near as loudly as renewables plus storage have gone beyond price parity and getting cheaper and the value of a distributed grid becomes more apparent, particularly where there is no grid.
      Stories of Australia’s Grid being vandalised by erratic “renewable” generation being allowed into the Grid is complete nonsense being put about by those with a vested interest in the status quo, or by those blindly believing their self-seeking rubbish.
      I have no idea which camp you fall in.
