Australia India Business Council chairman Jim Varghese says any move by state or federal governments to block Adani’s Carmichael coal mine would harm trade between the two nations. Varghese says India needs thermal coal to help meet its rapidly growing energy requirements, and he notes that Australian coal is cleaner than other sources. Meanwhile, Adani CEO Lucas Dow says the company would certainly seek compensation if the Greens private members’ bill to block thermal coal in Queensland is approved by state parliament.
