How To Vanquish Clive Palmer
🎧 PODCAST GUESTS: Murrawah Johnson, Sami Shah, Floyd Alexander Hunt, Dan Ilic and Lewis Hobba
G’day Fearmongers —
The most epic David vs Goliath climate battle went down in the Queensland court this week, and the little folks won.
Marrawah Johnson of Youth Verdict tells us how they beat Clive Palmer and got the Queensland Land and Environment Court to recommend against building the Waratah Coal mine. Putting another huge speed bump in the road for the Palmer owned mine. This means on atopic level: 40 million tons of coal per year have been prevented from being dug up from the Galilee basin and burned in power stations around the world. The carbon is staying in the ground for now.
This is a huge win for the planet and the Wangan & Jagalingou people.
Murrawah sets out a brand new playbook for bringing the law of the Commonwealth and Country to meet together to see how climate change is affecting culture, Country and the people that live there. It’s a new paradigm for climate activism.
ALSO on the podcast we have a mix of old and fresh faces. Floyd Alexander-Hunt, Sami Shah, Dan Ilic (me) , and Lewis Hobba talking about
