  • The Federal Govt Just Okayed Adani’s Plans For The Largest Coal Mine In Oz

Price said in a statement on Tuesday: "CSIRO and Geoscience Australia have independently assessed the groundwater management plans for the Carmichael Coal Mine and Rail Infrastructure project".

"The government will make all decisions based on the expert scientific advice of organisations, not just including the Department of Environment, but Geoscience Australia and the CSIRO, " he said.

Queensland and federal Greens MPs say the decision puts precious water resources at risk, and shows the federal government gave in to pressure from Adani.

"This project has been subject to the most rigorous approval process of any mining project in Australia", Price said.

"The Groundwater Dependent Ecosystems Management Plan and the Groundwater Management and Monitoring Plan detail all the activities we will undertake and safeguards we will implement to ensure that we meet the approval conditions for the mine relating to groundwater".

Queensland Minister for the Environment and the Great Barrier Reef Leeanne Enoch has already flagged her own concerns with the project, and the most recent approvals from the Federal Government.

REEKING of political interference - that is how the State Government environment minister has described the campaign from federal politicians Barnaby Joyce and Matt Canavan to get the Adani project approved.

"Frustratingly, however, we're sitting here with the state government continuing to shift the goalposts and standing in the way of us being able to deliver thousands of jobs".

It's now up to Labor Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk's government to approve the groundwater plan, and another plan to manage the tiny and endangered black-throated finch so that construction can begin.

Her department will take the time it needs to properly consider the plans, which she says must be in tune with the state's environmental laws.

Anti-Adani protests are becoming more shrill and disruptive as the nation awaits the date of the next federal election from Prime Minister Scott Morrison.

Labor's climate spokesman Mark Butler said that people across Australia would be asking themselves "how can you have any confidence that this decision was made on the merits of the case rather than because of the internal division and chaos in this government?".

Anti-Adani protesters disrupted a business lunch speech by Mr Morrison in Brisbane on Monday.

It is one of two outstanding management plans requiring the Queensland Government's approval for Carmichael's construction and mining to commence, according to Adani.
