Adani mine defence ‘farcical’

In The Age (21.10.15) Sarah Gill rubbishes Josh Frydenberg’s arguments in favour of the Adani mines (Insiders, 18.1015):  

‘Maybe it’s time to finally separate fact from fiction when it comes to the reasons behind new coal development. Because it’s not about jobs, which, it turns out, were vastly overstated by Adani; there’s no economically rational argument for boosting coal supply – with 52 new mines and expansions in the pipeline – just as our major trading partners announce plans to cease thermal coal imports; and we can be absolutely certain it has nothing whatsoever to do with addressing the humanitarian concerns of the developing world.’
