Greens slam Queensland Labor’s continuing coal obsession

Queensland Greens spokesperson Andrew Bartlett says statements by Ministers at this weekend’s ALP state conference demonstrate the Labor Party’s continuing obsession with expanding coal mining in Queensland, which paints a bleak future for the Great Barrier Reef.

“Minister Steven Miles ran an election campaign promising he would be “Miles better for the Reef”, and is now Minister for the Great Barrier Reef, but he has once again publicly supported massive expansion of coal mining in Queensland."
