In the last month green groups have had a win against the Adani Carmichael mine with the mine’s approval overturned for a skink and a snake.

Over the weekend in an interview with the Weekend Australian Adani reaffirmed its commitment.

Gautam Adani said: “the company stands ready to proceed with its significant investments in Queensland, plainly, what is required is certainty and clarity on a now five- year long approvals pathway”.

And in today’s papers there is a full paid ad by the Queensland resources council with the headline “Green activists are using the legal system to kill Queensland jobs”.
Steve spoke to Chief Executive of the Queensland Resources Council Michael Roche.
Steve also spoke to Mayor of Townsville Jenny Hill about the mine.

Listen to both interviews here.
