Environment Minister Tanya Plibersek said the project posed an unacceptable risk to the World Heritage area, which is already highly vulnerable. The mine's owner, the controversial Australian billionaire Clive Palmer, has not yet responded to the rejection. Read more; https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.bbc.com/news/world-australia-62431331.amp

                              Incredible.But does this mean that Australia has now revoked the coal trade ties with China? I'm yet to read that on paper and that'll have vindicated the govt's good intentions to block the coal mines for the sake of the great barrier reef.
