Judge rejects Rocky Hill mine near Gloucester, NSW, because of its impact on the town and ‘dire consequences’ of increasing emissions
Adam BandtBREAKING: Huge!! Court rules out new Oz coal mine on climate change grounds: “emissions of coal mine and its coal product will increase global total concentrations of [greenhouse gases] when what is now urgently needed...is a rapid & deep decrease” #Greens

If we don't quit coal, we're screwed.
By sending asylum seekers to Ashmore Reef, government wanted to ensure boat arrivals could be legally detained offshore

Hanson’s motion defeated, but move signals government’s push to bankroll coal in national energy guarantee
Adam BandtThe world is burning, but the Turnbull gov just voted in favour of spending public money - that could be going to schools and hospitals - on a new coal-fired power station.
