Malcolm made a promise to you during the election campaign that there would be no public funding for Adani’s mega coal projects.
Turnbull has just announced his new cabinet and conservative Nationals Senator Matthew Canavan has been promoted to the Minister for Resources and Northern Australia. This is VERY concerning for two reasons:
- He believes Adani's Carmichael coal projects are "incredibly exciting"
- He denies the science of climate change
Malcolm's promotion of a climate denying, coal advocate to the role of Resources Minister and Minister for Northern Australia throws doubt on whether he is serious about this promise.
Sign the petition calling on Malcolm to put Adani's applications for the dangerous Carmichael coal projects in the bin so the coal in the Galilee Basin stays underground where it belongs.
