Resources. Queensland Style

New coal mine leases for the Carmichael  mines approved for indian company Adeni,

Worth $21 billion and expected to have substantial environmental impact, we only see $100 million  to the Formerly Great Barrier Reef. this does not even account for real effects of carbon emissions when we should be looking at greener fuels.

Once again we here numbers in the million sprouting from politicians and think they are huge.

Maybe we need to look at what the real value the Reef is for, Tourism, Fishing and protection of the northern coastlines. Only then can we present educated logical scientific advice. Dreaming of course. Everything is in four year terms for our governments. The future is only a carrot suspended before us.
