    So unbelievably short sighted!! When all the resources are either gone or ruined, what good will money be then??

    It's all the same everywhere. Money talks. We, in the minority better be ready for the worst. Australia will suffer more than ever.

    Don’t you love it when they talk about the jobs they claim they can create at the same time failing to mention how rich it would make the owner and how it could destroy the environment😳🤨

    Africa is being filled by coal energy power stations. Stop them before it’s too late!

    How many people are willing to quit their jobs and place their family’s well being in jeopardy to reduce emissions when most people can’t even give up their car? Not many I assume.

    Very long and repetitive. Simple solution, if you don't want electricity and jobs... Change the way you live. And, don't ask the government to take care of you either, because coal and being part of the global economy is how they are going to subsidize you if you have no income to tax.

    I suggest he goes and works down the mine instead of ranting in Parliament. His arguments are based on the deluded belief that profit trumps the future of the planet. Let coal lie. In Australia's climate, he could provide jobs by using the land for solar farming.
