DEA appears at enquiry into Mineral Resources (Galilee Basin)  Amendment Bill 2018 in Brisbane


DEA has provided a submission in support of stopping all coal mining in the Galilee Basin. Drs Lucy-Jane Watt, Karin Kochmann and Andrew Jerimijenko were asked to appear before the committee and gave evidence about health impacts of climate change and coal mining. The evidence was well-received and the committee has asked for further details about the dollar-health costs of climate change.  However, DEA's delegation said it was disheartening to see some members keep returning to 'rusted-on ideology', suggesting 'Adani coal is cleaner and somehow better for climate change, and preoccupied with our coal saving the developing world'.

"Tim Buckley was outstanding and did his best to try and explain to some of the panel that there is one planet and one atmosphere, but the committee seemed really focussed on Australia and Qld’s “share” of the responsibility, failing to recognise our place in the global context"
