The LNP and Labor need to make their position on uranium mining in Queensland clear, the Australian Greens said today.
The Queensland Greens have welcomed the assessment by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) that they have by far the strongest election commitments for protecting Queensland's coasts and marine environment, and the hundreds of thousands of jobs that depend on it.
Queensland Greens lead candidate Adam Stone has told the biggest industrial relations debate of the election campaign that the Greens are now clearly the party which best defends and promotes the rights of workers and unions.

The Queensland Greens have welcomed news of the Australian Reef Pilots - planned submission to state and federal governments on the problems posed by increased coal shipping through the Great Barrier Reef.
Only the Greens offer Queensland an entirely consistent position on uranium mining and the nuclear industry.
‘The ALP says that they will retain Queensland’s uranium mining ban, but they permit exploration and federally they are looking to expand markets for Australian uranium,’ said Queensland Greens lead candidate and candidate for Mt Coot-tha, Adam Stone.
