Anvil Hill

Last night Greenpeace activists projected messages onto a grounded coal carrier to protest the continued expansion of NSW's coal industry in the face of climate change. 'THIS IS WHAT CLIMATE CHANGE LOOKS LIKE' and COAL CAUSES CLIMATE CHAOS' were beamed onto the side of the ship, which ran aground on Nobbys Beach in Newcastle during the severe weather on NSW's coastline.
The ship's misfortune occurred just days after the NSW government approved the polluting Anvil Hill coal mine. If we keep burning coal, scientists tell us extreme weather events will increase. So why is the NSW government approving new coalmines and the expansion of Newcastle’s coal industry?
