ADANI VERSUS THE LAW

This show was broadcast on Mon 7th September 2015

Court Case leaves the climate change question unanswered

Do citizens have a right to take a mine project to court? Is this vigilante litigation?
Joining BZE Radio are Professor Samantha Hepburn, Lawyer Jeff Smith for the Mackay Conservation Group, and Law lecturer Cristy Clark.
“One of the other considerations raised by the Mackay Conservation Group – the greenhouse gas emissions released from burning extracted coal overseas – was left unresolved by the court.” – Prof Samantha Hepburn

“…under a democratic system, the rule of law means that the government is constrained by law and can be held accountable by the people.” – Cristy Clark
