Cooking the climate, Wrecking the Reef: The global impacts of coal exports from Australia's Galiliee Basin

Ratings: (0)|Views: 7,998 |Likes:
Advanced plans are in place to build nine mega mines in one region of Queensland, Australia. Located in the Galilee Basin, five of these projects would each be larger than any coal mine currently operating in the country. If these go ahead, they could
produce more coal than Australia currently exports. |

If the Galilee Basin were a country, the carbon dioxide produced from using this coal would make it the seventh dirtiest fossil fuel burner on the planet. The Galilee Basin coal boom is not just one of the greatest ever environmental threats to Australia, its climate implications are global.
