It would be hard to make this stuff up. Australia's legendarily
irresponsible mining industry has a new plan:while the planet faces
catastrophic climate change, build the world's largest coal mining
complex, and then build a shipping lane to that port straight
through the greatest ecological treasure we have - the Great
This is a terrible idea with devastating consequences, and the
investor group Aurizon that's backing it know it. They're getting
cold feet, and we might be able to push them over the edge, and
kill the project. One of the main potential funders has even
donated to climate activism!
If one million of us express our head-shaking disbelief at this
crazy project in the next few days, we can help get Aurizon to pull
funding and maybe even persuade the Australian PM to step in.This
is what Avaaz is for, let's raise a voice for common sense!
