Prominent Australians ask Adani to abandon coal mine project
A day after a group of Australians visited Adani Group's headquarters in Ahmedabad and protested against the Carmichael mine project, a delegation led by Premier of Queensland, Australia, Annastacia Palaszczuk, visited Adani Group's Mundra port in Kutch district on Friday and reaffirmed Queensland government's commitment to the $16.5 billion project.
According to a comment from Adani Group chairman, Gautam Adani, over the weekend, it seems increasingly likely that the company will give Carmichael the go-ahead.
Whitsunday tourism operator, Lindsay Simpson, said her business had already been affected by global warming that was killing the coral on the Great Barrier Reef and feared a new coal mine in Queensland would damage it further.
The project will produce 60 million tonnes of thermal coal a year for exports to India.
The project located in Galilee Basin in central Queensland has been mired in controversy right from the start - when it was proposed in 2010 by Adani Mining Pty Ltd, a subsidiary of the Adani Group.
Most recently in Australia, a campaign involving businessmen, musicians and former sportsmen, and Greens Party senators has seen a petition sent to Gautam Adani claiming Carmichael does not have support here. We won't mind if it comes in clean energy and not environmentally unsafe coal mining.
"It must be remembered that the Adani project will provide enormous benefits to people and communities who are doing it much tougher", AMMA chief executive Steve Knott said.
The members of the Australian delegation landed in India want Adani Group to abandon the project. "Back in Australia, the Government licence is not sufficient".
As many as 90 widely known Australians on Thursday asked Adani Enterprises Limited to reconsider its decision to build a coal mine near the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland.
Besides the former Australian Test cricket captains, authors Richard Flanagan and Tim Winton, Telstra chair John Mullen and investment banker Mark Burrows signed the letter.
Meanwhile in a written statement Adani Group confirmed that it received a letter from Mr. Geoffrey Cousins of ACF, whose legal challenge has been dismissed by the Australian courts.
Ian Chappell told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation that cricket has "a bit to do with the feeling" between the two countries. "The proposed mine in Australia has been cleared after rigorous assessments and strict conditions", said the statement.
