Townsville forum: Doctors and nurses speak out on the health effects of Adani’s coalmine

 Organised by members of Doctors for the Environment Australia, this public forum held at James Cook University in Townsville involved doctors, nurses and farmers speaking out on the impacts of the Adani Carmichael mine on health.

The proposed Adani Carmichael mine has the potential to increase a range of illnesses that must be carefully considered before any final decision on the project is made.

DEA spokesperson Dr Lucy Owen says, “The mining and burning of coal from this single project would increase air pollution, damage water supplies in a drought prone area like ours and lead to 4.7 billion tons of greenhouse gas emissions.”
