Former Australian Conservation Foundation president Geoff Cousins held private meetings with Opposition Leader Bill Shorten in January. They discussed the potential environmental impact of Adani’s proposed Carmichael coal mine in Queensland, and Cousins says Shorten repeatedly stated that Labor will revoke Adani’s coal mining licence on environmental grounds if it wins the next election. Shorten’s stance on the Carmichael mine has wavered over the last year, and Cousins argues that he needs to resolve Labor’s policy regarding the controversial project.
