The Queensland Government is expected to approve Adani’s Carmichael coal mine within weeks, after Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk demanded an end to the delays that have stalled the project. Palaszczuk has described Labor’s federal election defeat as a "wake-up call", after having previously downplayed suggestions that the Adani debate had affected Labor’s vote in regional Queensland. Adani Mining CEO Lucas Dow has urged the state to act quickly to give final approval to the project, but Basha Stasak of the Australian Conservation Foundation says the government must not yield to pressure from Adani and the coal industry.
