Adani: Indian fishermen warn Australia against environmental impact ahead of coal mine talks


Fishermen in India say a local Adani project is harming them and killing off sea life, warning Australia to be wary as Queensland's Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk prepares to decide whether to proceed with the Carmichael coal mine.

Key Points

  • Noor Mohammad said the Adani project's coal dust, stream discharge harmed the community
  • Adani has been heavily criticised for a series of environmental breaches during construction of Gujarat project
  • Comment was sought from Adani on measures it had taken to address the ash problem, but the ABC received no response
  • Ms Palaszczuk and eight regional mayors are preparing to sit down with the chairman of Adani Enterprises, Gautam Adani, ahead of the company deciding whether to proceed with the proposed mine.

It seems like the only people who want this mine are Adani, and Australian politicians who just can't take their eyes off the money !
