The Australian Conservation Foundation (ACF) are claiming the Federal Environment Minister erred in granting approval to the Carmichael Coal Mine. The Environmental Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (Cth) requires all domestic decisions to be consistent with Australia’s world heritage listing of the Great Barrier Reef by UNESCO. The ACF allege the minister made an error of law by failing to consider the global warming potential of the coal exports as a direct consequence of the development of the mine.
