Australia: Queensland Greens Concerned over Gladstone Harbour


Queensland Greens Concerned over Gladstone Harbour

The first 100 days of Campbell Newman’s Premiership have been a disaster for Queensland’s future according to the Queensland Greens.

On the 100th day of taking over responsibility for governing the State and all its features and assests, Premier Newman’s success on the big issues can be judged as turbidity levels rise again in Gladstone Harbour.

Queensland Greens spokesperson, Dr Jim McDonald, said that it’s not just inaction on environmental damage that is wrecking the fishing industry in Gladstone marking the first hundred days. Mr Newman has also deliberately killed off the immediate future for renewable energy in Queensland.
