In reply to John McGrath, secretary, Yass Landscape Guardians, here's proper analysis about how little the coal industry pays for all its subsidies and damage to environment, particularly for all the coal exported from Queensland ... easily found with organisations like Australia Institute and New Matilda.
You’ll find not just opinion, but actual data, attributed to reliable sources. It demonstrates beyond any doubt that Queensland revenue, from motor vehicle registrations alone, is more than royalties from all of coal mining.
George Brandis judged nothing wrong with bigotry. Is it bigotry that Landscape Guardians choose to guard? Do they do anything else?
