Protect the Gardens of Stone from destructive coal mining
"Who agrees that we can't let a coal mine destroy this unique Australian landscape?" asks NSW GreenMP Jeremy Buckingham. "The Gardens of Stone on the edge of the Blue Mountains near Lithgow will be destroyed if coal mining is allowed to go ahead.
"Here I am standing on the precipice of the sandstone pagodas in this beautiful Australian bushland that could be ruined through subsidence caused by longwall mining techniques - where they deliberate collapse the earth as the mining machine moves along the coal face. As the age of coal comes to a close, we should not be risking such incredible areas."
