Environmental Vandals using the COVID-19 Crisis to Get Dodgy Projects Up. 24/4/20
This perceptive article by Mike Seccombe in The Saturday Paper (11-17/4/20) details what disaster capitalists are doing to get mining under dams, fracking and revamps for coal-fired power up while Parliaments are closed and the world is distracted by the COVID epidemic.
At the head of it all is the inimitable rorter, Angus Taylor, busy looking after his Lib donors mates in the coal lobby, managing an unmonitored and possibly illegal slush fund and pressuring State governments to lower their standards or have Federal money withheld. And that is not to mention his buying Australia emergency oil storage in the USA!
