- Hon. Greg Hunt, Federal Minister for the Environment
We are writing as concerned citizens regarding the proposed development of the Carmichael coalmines in the Mackay region, and the risks posed by the Adani mining company in their mission to build the coalmine in the middle of this beautiful Natural Heritage Area.
The development of these mines will have many horrific impacts on the fauna and flora in Australia, our precious water usage, the pollution of our environment, precious indigenous culture and the tourism industry.
These mines will endanger 60 species in the Great Barrier Reef, use 12 billion litres of precious water every year, have an overwhelming contribution to the "carbon" bomb, produce four times the fossil fuels of New Zealand and have countless other negative impacts if Adani mining company goes through with their plans.

We, the undersigned, petition the Hon. Greg Hunt, Federal Minister for the Environment, to reconsider approval of the development of the Carmichael coalmines in the Mackay region.
We wish to express our concern about the severe environmental and cultural destruction that would follow the operation of the mines.
We are particularly concerned about the irreversible damage this development would have on the Great Barrier Reef.
