The direct impact of coal mining on water resources is bad enough, but it’s not the only reason to turn up for tomorrow’s rally.
97% of practising climate scientists agree that burning coal is changing the climate to something civilised humans have never known. That’s another reason.
Need another one? Coal harms the health of people who live and work in the Hunter Valley at a money cost of around $600 million a year.
Long story short: King Coal’s day is done. People and the planet can no longer afford coal.
Whatever your reason, tomorrow come along and rally against coal mining in the Highlands. See you there!!
