    They try to entice people into bad decisions with the promise of more jobs. The truth is that switching over to more renewable energy creates jobs too. People have to build and maintain the wind and solar farms.

    Read John Grisham's book "Gray Mountain" and you will understand the need to save the environment and the lives of men inhaling coal dust and die early deaths. No jobs, no deaths. Thanks for the posting.

    These dinosaurs need to go. ‘Job creation’ is a bullying tactic by those in power. Trying to reinforce the idea that we need jobs to survive, and that we need them (big business), when in fact the opposite is true. They need us (workers/peasants) to keep them rich and in power. So I call bullshit! What we really need is to take back our land, grow food, work together and for each other and our children.

    When they arrest journalists, they prove they know, they are wrong and against community's interests.

    Many Australians are disgusted with our Government for allowing the Adani Mine to go ahead. It is a useless and destructive project which we will continue to protest.
