Stop Adani

As I have noticed the Adani mine will cause too much strain on the Australian community. Coal mining will kill millions of human lives globally every year, it is contributing to the drought and Adani has done multiple untrustworthy deeds. We should be looking to increase off the grid power. We are surrounded by oceans deserts and have plenty of wind. If we use all these advantages to cut down our usage of coal.

On Average the poor air quality in these mines kills 3 million people a year globally and approximately 3,000 in Australia. Yes, the mines may provide jobs for many people but that doesn’t matter if they have a high chance of death. Local communities air gets infected by coal dust. If you inhale too much coal dust you could get heart and lung disease, high blood pressure, kidney disease and Black lung. Adani emits Sulfur dioxide, nitrogen dioxides, mercury and particulates which go into the bloodstream and contributes to all these diseases.

As you will know Queensland is in the middle of a terrible drought and one of the main contributors is mining. If the mine is put in place over its lifetime it will suck out 270 billion liters of water. There are 160 wetlands that provide water for areas in drought, but the mines threaten those wetlands. The mines will dump wastewater into the Carmichael river making that water undrinkable. It will risk damaging the main water source for rural Queensland. If the mine is put in place these problems will last forever.

It is not wise to trust Adani. They illegally started work at the Carmichael mine site and doing so by drilling clearing vegetation then lying about it to the Queensland government. Adani allowed coal-laden to spew of of its Abbot Point coal terminal and into the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area which breached its pollution license by 800%. The CEO of Adani had a mining company in Zambia, and it poisoned an entire river which 40% of the population relied on. The mines are currently under several investigations facing charges for financial crimes and tax dogging.

In conclusion you must stop Adani because it kills millions of people a year, robs our water and Adani is untrustworthy. When Adani poisoned the river, over 1800 Zambians sued them. Coal is the biggest contributor to global warming. Global warming is destroying our wonder of the world and we don’t get a second one its already mostly dead. What we do to contribute to global warming affects the entire planet. We need to make a change before it’s too late.
