Last of the "Big Four Banks" says "No" to Adani coal mine



The last of the "Big Four" banks in Australia have have said NO to financing the Adani Carmichael Coal Mine.

This is in addition to all the big international banks that have already said NO!

Fortunately for us, banks actually look at risk and see the Adani mine for the toxic investment that it is.

Unfortunately for us, that still leaves Australians tax dollars and QSuper as possible funding sources. No bank will touch it, so lets raid Queenslanders Super to pay for it.

That is fine however, because it will not effect his home address, his Canberra residence or his investment property

Three mortgages over the Western Australia senator's home address, his Canberra residence and an investment property are all held by Westpac, according to parliamentary records.

Federal Labor have just in the last few day come out as being AGAINST the Adani mine.

Hear it load and clear people, COAL's day is OVER!

I almost feel sorry for the guy (almost). Who would actually want to be the minister for resources in this day.

Unfortunately he is putting a paltry few jobs ahead of the death of the Great Barrier Reef and the planet in general.

He is also trying to spin the use of coal as a good thing. The latest is that we are doing it for the poor people in India who do not have electricity.

If Australia really cared about people in iIndia, we would not have cut our foreign aid to the lowest level in 8 years.
