‘Per head of population, Australia is already one of the world’s worst carbon polluters.

‘Despite this, our two major political parties – Labor and the Liberal-Nationals – are pushing ahead
with the approval of a coal mine in Queensland that will exponentially increase our carbon emissions.

‘The Carmichael mine, proposed by Indian mining giant Adani, will be the largest of its kind in the southern hemisphere and annually produce  more carbon emissions than a small country.

‘In this special five-part New Matilda series,  researchers from the University of Queensland,
along with the Wangan and Jagalingou Traditional Owners Council,  and Australian Lawyers for Human Rights  look at the ‘who, what, when, where and why’ of the proposed Adani Carmichael coal mine,
