This post is completely 'on its own' - it has absolutely nothing to do with my book but everything to do with present-day greed and destruction of natural resources. The following quote from Avaaz:
"... Australia’s legendarily
irresponsible mining industry has a new plan: while the planet faces
catastrophic climate change, build the world’s largest coal mining
complex, and then build a shipping lane to that port straight through
greatest ecological treasure we have - the Great Barrier Reef!
one million of us express our head-shaking disbelief at this crazy
project in the next few days, we can help get Aurizon to pull funding
and maybe even persuade the Australian PM to step in."
