Last night's news about the approval of Adani's groundwater plan almost certainly seals the deal for the mining giant to begin work. It's rather ironic that this decision was made just days after Climate Week. We'll be getting out on the streets to voice our concerns - we'd love to see you there. It's hard to listen to the news, it's hard to stay inspired, but I think Richard Denniss sums it up best:
Thank goodness your real support of our local farmers - people who care for the soil, the wildlife, the water and your health - secures our food system and provides a real climate solution in the face of such destruction.
"I'd be good at running a farm if you gave me free land & water. I'd be very good at running a shop if you gave me free rent & labour - apparently #Adani is good at running a mine - but Aus has to gift free coal, water & infrastructure," @RDNS_TAI on @abcnews @JezNews #auspol pic.twitter.com/y4uShqOTLm— Australia Institute (@TheAusInstitute) June 13, 2019
