The Guardian published an article on the Ocean Elders letter to Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull. In the letter, Ocean Elders stated that “Now is the time for decisive action. We urge you to stop the development of the Carmichael coal mine and support renewable energy projects that align with Australia’s ambitions and enhance broader global efforts to combat climate change.”
The article, ‘Ocean Elders’ urge Malcolm Turnbull to reject Adani coalmine, included parts of an interview with Dr. Sylvia Earle with RN Breakfast. In the interview, Dr. Earle commented on the link between the Carmichael coalmine and damage to the Great Barrier Reef was “not just speculation,” and said scientific monitoring of the reef showed an “unprecedented decline.”
