Greens demand release of expert advice behind Adani finch plan approval

The Greens have demanded Queensland Labor release Professor Brendan Wintle’s expert review of Adani’s Black-Throated Finch Management Plan after the politically tainted approval today.

Queensland Greens MP and former environmental lawyer Michael Berkman said:

“Just 28 days ago, the Department of Environment rejected Adani’s finch plan based on an expert review by some of Australia’s top scientists.

“I understand that the expert review was scathing of Adani’s plans.

“Queensland Labor must immediately release their expert review of Adani’s finch plan.

“It defies reality to suggest that you can can save an endangered species by bulldozing its best remaining habitat and draining the springs it relies on.

“Queensland Labor can keep fighting for Adani, or they can join us in fighting for real jobs, housing and justice for coal workers and coal towns.
