Mr HIBBINS — I attended a screening of Guarding the Galilee, which is a 30-minute documentary on the battle to stop the biggest coal mine in Australian history, the Adani Carmichael project. The documentary was by the Stonnington Climate Action Network and the Australian Conservation Foundation.

The federal government must not let this giant polluting and dangerous coal mine go ahead, which would drive up climate change, damage the Great Barrier Reef and trash our environment. Banks are getting out of coal — they know it is a bad bet. I urge the federal government to abandon their support for this project and not lend them a cent. I congratulate my local community for taking a stance against this folly.
