At the same time as the world balances on the precipice of climate change, Qld is rapidly increasing it's addiction to coal. Qld coal already contributes 30% of Australia's greenhouse gas emissions - and the Bligh government is celebrating the forecast tripling of Qld coal production by 2030. Now a new coal port is proposed for pristine Shoalwater Bay in Central Qld.
