Summary
This book counts the true human and economic costs of Australia's short-term mineral addiction. Whether it be coal-seam gas, LNG or coal mega-mines, a resources rush is happening in just about every productive corner of our country. Yet at the same time oversight and regulation have been hollowed out. High-risk projects are being approved without proper assessment of the long-term consequences. Water resources, farmland and national parks are under threat, and people, communities and industries are being steamrolled. This book plots the dubious networks created and greased by mining companies to get their projects through and exposes regulatory gaps that must be addressed to enormous and irreversible harm to our society and environment
