Questions without Notice
My question is to the Prime Minister. As former environment minister Peter Garrett pointed out this week, the Queensland Labor government is strongly backing the Adani coal megamine, which will make global warming worse, threaten our way of life and mean more deaths from heatwaves and bushfires. Prime Minister, will you take steps to step in and override this rogue state government, like Bob Hawke did with the Franklin Dam? Or is the only way now for the people of Brisbane to stop the Adani mine to elect the Greens' Amy MacMahon, Michael Berkman and Kirsten Lovejoy to hold the balance of power in the Queensland parliament?
