Action by the Queensland Greens has encouraged Logan Council to start urgent improvements to serious flooding problems that risked the health of locals.
Recent flooding exposed the weak sewage infrastructure with a ‘geyser’ spewing raw sewage near Paradise Road, next to IKEA and in the nearby Slacks Creek wetlands.
New research linking the burning of coal with deaths from heart attacks highlights the need for Australia to curb further expansion of coal mining.
The Queensland Greens say the LNP puts mining profits before community health with its refusal to demand covered coal wagons and port stockpiles.
The Queensland Greens’ Senate candidate, Adam Stone said coal dust blowing into communities from the Port of Brisbane and from trains travelling through our suburbs were a serious health threat.
