ADANI IS AN ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH RISK WE CAN'T AFFORD May 2019
The background check in Queensland’s environmental law has a gap so large that Adani has driven an automated coal truck straight through it.It has been able to do this because the background check the Queensland regulator undertakes to assess if a company is a suitable operator does not cover that company’s environmental record in overseas jurisdictions. A 2017 report on corruption risks in mining approvals by Transparency International Australia highlighted this serious flaw in Queensland’s laws, confirming it creates a risk that mining leases will be granted to operators with a history of non-compliance.

The state secretary of the construction and general division, Michael Ravbar, said Palaszczuk risked “being taken for a ride by a shonky multinational with a chequered corporate history”.
“This coal, and the 12.5 billion litres of water that Adani also plans to extract every year, is owned by the people of Queensland, yet we see little evidence that Adani is offering anything in return,” Ravbar said……“Then when the mine is operational it will largely be automated, with robots and remote controlled machinery.”
