Summary

Edit

The majority voted against a motion, which means it failed.

Motion text

That the Senate—

(a) notes with concern:

(i) the Adani Group's proposed Carmichael coal mine, which would see 2 billion tonnes of coal dug up over 60 years,

(ii) the amount of carbon pollution sourced from the Adani mine would significantly contribute to dangerous global warming, and further endanger the Great Barrier Reef,

(iii) Adani company's history of corruption, tax-dodging and environmental malfeasance in their operations overseas, and now evidenced in Australia by recent accusations that Adani falsified a report into wetland pollution at Abbott Point,

(b) further notes that over 65 per cent of Australians oppose Adani's Carmichael coal mine, according to polling conducted on 25 January 2018; and

(c) confirms that Adani's Carmichael coal mine should not proceed.
