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
