Too close for comfort: how the coal and gas industry get their way in Queensland

Too Close for Comfort examines the relationship between the Queensland Government and the fossil fuel industry. The report reveals a pattern of secrecy, a lack of accountability and transparency and a fast moving revolving door between the highest levels of the bureaucracy and government, where political donations may well be just the tip of the iceberg.’
