Coal & beef industries need certainty in the face of climate-driven legal action

February 11, 2019

State and federal governments must act swiftly to protect the coal and beef industries against activist-driven climate lawfare in the courts.

Conservative Party Queensland Senate candidate Lyle Shelton said yesterday’s decision by a judge in the New South Wales Land and Environment Court to stop a coal mine because of warming alarmism fears set a dangerous precedent.

“Imagine what will happen next time there is an application for a new feedlot. The coal and beef industries are now no longer safe from litigation,” Mr Shelton said.

“Governments need to act to shore-up the legal status of industries which will be targets of climate activists. This is all the more reason why the federal government should immediately withdraw from the Paris climate accord,” he continued.

Mr Shelton said climate alarmism had already damaged the Australian economy and it was time for the government to draw a line under its political demands.
