The Moral Case for Coal

100 million of the world's poorest people will be better off thanks to Australian legislation that was passed last month.

In contrast to the rhetoric that claims to help people, this legislation had nothing to do with increasing foreign aid or redistributing wealth. It had everything to do with the new $16 billion dollar Queensland coal mine that is set to become "the biggest Australia has ever seen."

The project is spearheaded by Indian industrialist Gautam Adani who stubbornly persisted with the project despite the objection of green lobby groups.

In an era where lacking electricity leads to more deaths than malaria, HIV and tuberculosis combined, there is no time to waste in a commercial operation that benefits both Australia and growing  global energy demand.
