Another fun action outside the Whitehaven haul road just to let them know how we feel, and to let Tony Burke know it is ok ( and right) to say no to Coal and that Open cut don’t heal.
It has been a blessing with all the rain, the forest is greening up and the rivers are in flood the farmers are very happy, and the forest floor is very spongy so they have not be able to do any more clearing, tomorrow may be another story!!! BUT the weather does have a down side, both mines are still in operation and there for blasting is on going, When they blast in wet or damp conditions the ANFO (explosives) don’t burn efficiently and give off a much more deadly gas of Nitrogen Dioxide and Oxides of Nitrogen, PAH (Polychromatic Hydrocarbons), BTEX, PCB’s. ANFO also has impurities added including MERCURY, LEAD, and CADMIUM, this gas will kill you!!!! A few of the close neighbours to these open cut coal mines have already be very sick, they have seen birds fly in to the orange cloud of death and fall out of the sky DEAD!!!
