We’ve wrapped up the Federal Court hearing for the Living Wonders climate cases.
Across three days, EJA lawyers represented the Environment Council of Central Queensland in their cases against Environment Minister Tanya Plibersek and two coal companies, MACH Energy and Narrabri Coal Operations.
For ECoCeQ, we argued the Minister acted unlawfully when she refused to accept the climate harm these projects are likely to cause, as outlined in thousands of scientific reports, including from the IPCC and her own department.
The outcome of these cases is likely to affect all pending coal and gas decisions on the Minister’s desk.
Now, ECoCeQ is awaiting the judgment. In the meantime, join us for a webinar to share what happened in the hearing and what’s next for the Living Wonders climate cases.
WHEN: 7PM AEST (6:30PM ACST, 5PM AWST), Wednesday 27th September
