RAJ REPORT

Why are the GREENS and LABOR allowing ABOTT POINT PORT to be dredged , when it is supporting one of the most destructive Projects the Earth has ever seen——- Is any bank dumb enough to fund the Galilee Basin coalapolooza? | Bill McKibben | Comment is free | The Guardian———————The fact that whoever lends money for Galilee coal is going to be underwriting one of the most destructive projects the earth has ever seen. There’s that large reef in the neighborhood that for some reason people care about, and then there’s the planet’s, you know, climate. This one basin could take us 6% of the way past the two-degree rise in temperature that the world’s governments have set as the ultimate red line. Can you say “reputation risk?” Wouldn’t it be interesting to have every activist on earth campaigning against your bank all at once?
