The Mouse that Roars: Coal in the Queensland economy
Paper (October 2014) on the coal industry in Queensland by Roderick Campbell, Research Fellow with The Australia Institute:
’99 per cent of Queenslanders do not work in the coal industry.
96 per cent of Queensland government revenue does not come from coal royalties.
93 per cent of Queensland’s gross state product does not come from coal production.
Despite this, Queensland’s leaders regularly exaggerate the role of coal in Queensland.’
