The announcements by Australian Federal Environment Minister Tony Burke that he would allow further Coal Mines in NSW moves the Country further to becoming a Game of Russian Roulette rigged un favour of extractives played with a fully loaded gun pointed at the heads of Australians and an irrepairable Death Sentence for local ecosystems.
Environment Minister Tony Burke signed away approvals for Whitehaven's Maules Creek mine, planned for the Leard State Forest, Idemitsu's neighbouring Boggabri coalmine expansion, and a coal seam gas development planned by AGL for Gloucester in NSW. Yes the approvals are conditional, but the conditions do not include "no environmental or social harm."
Already irrepairable damage is being done by existing mining and gas operations, changing forever the character of local communities and ecosystems.
