ABC News: Nationwide, a majority of voters are against building the Adani coal mine

The Morrison Government gave it the final federal approvals before going into caretaker mode, reportedly after pressure from some Queensland Liberal National MPs, leaving the future of the project in the hands the State Labor Government, which is still mulling over approvals for Adani’s groundwater and black-throated finch management plans.

The level of opposition in the Vote Compass results was consistently high across most demographics: men, women, level of education, income, language spoken at home and religion.  https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-05-16/federal-election-vote-compass-adani-mine-response/11110408

The Adani Carmichael coal mine has been an election issue across state and federal politics since 2016.

Despite bipartisan support, it defined the November 2017 Queensland election, has shaped federal by-elections since and prompted protests in almost every Australian state and territory – including a convoy that has made its way up to the neighbouring town of Clermont all the way from Tasmania.

So given it’s gone through several revisions thanks to issues with funding and environmental approvals, what does the proposed mine look like now?

This is a heavily revised version of the graphic originally created for the 2017 Queensland state election.

It will be updated as new information becomes available.
