Election deception

Posted on: Sun 21 Apr 2019

Documents published by the ABC reveal that the Prime Minister and the Environment Minister both misled Australians about Adani’s willingness to address significant scientific concerns about its plans to suck-up billions of litres of groundwater for its massive coal mine.

The documents show Adani refused to accept scientists’ concerns that the company’s water modelling was not appropriate.

Speaking to Barometer’s Des Lawrence, the Australian Conservation Foundation’s Stop Adani Campaigner, Christian Slattery, pointed to the documents as evidence the Morrison Government had engaged in an extraordinary stitch-up to rush through Adani’s groundwater approval on the eve of an election, despite scientific and environmental concerns.
