Treasurer Peter Gutwein refused to rule out committing further public funding to bail out the now-precarious Twamley Dam and Prosser pipeline construction projects on the drought-ridden East Coast.
Rosalie Woodruff MP | Greens Climate spokesperson
In a climate emergency, carbon that’s in the ground must stay in the ground. It’s that simple.
The Greens’ motion in Parliament called for a straightforward, urgently needed, ban on new thermal coal mines in Tasmania. It reflected the dire need to keep fossil fuels in the ground and prevent adding more carbon emissions to an overloaded atmosphere.
Cassy O'Connor MP | Greens Leader
Tasmania’s future is clearly not in coal mining, but you wouldn’t know that from the Premier’s contribution in Question Time today.
We asked if his government really is prepared to sacrifice farmers, tourism operators, the concerns of Tasmanian Aborigines, the integrity of our clean, green brand, and undermine this island’s contribution to a safe climate, in order to ramp up coal exploration, extraction and exports.
