Greens call on Bill Shorten to take stand - one way or another - on Adani

Greens Leader Richard Di Natale is calling on Bill Shorten and the Labor Party to make clear its position on the Adani mine.

“A month ago, Bill Shorten said he supported the Adani mega-mine. Now we have Labor’s Energy and Environment spokesperson having a bet each way on Adani because it could 'displace other jobs in mining', without a single mention of the environment, of climate change or of the damage that this mine will do to our Great Barrier Reef.

Mark Butler sounds more like a paid shill for the coal industry than the Shadow Environment Minister.

“Bill Shorten now needs to make clear what he will do about Adani’s Carmichael mine if he forms Government.

“He has a very clear choice to make here. Bill Shorten needs to recognise that the mine is a climate disaster and put a stop to the project.

"If he makes clear the project's approval would be reversed, Adani will have to can the project."
