Australia's environmental laws do not take into account the impacts of projects on climate change.

As of the end of May there were still a few obstacles for Adani to solve according to the Australia Institute -

"Litigation between Wangan and Jagalingou Traditional Owners Family Council and Adani about the Indigenous Land Use Agreement still needs to be resolved. Decision expected by September.

Finance still unclear. Adani has not publicly confirmed it has finance for the mine or rail line.
Currently Adani Enterprises, the parent company of Adani Mining in Australia, has a cash balance of US$182 million in its most recently disclosed balance sheet, even though Adani says the initial phase of the mine and rail will cost at least $2 billion. 36 financial institutions, including some of the world’s largest banks, have ruled out financing the mine.

Adani does not have a contractor for the construction of the mine or rail, after parting ways with contractors like Downer18and AECOM19. Adani has not confirmed insurance for the project. Thirteen major insurers have ruled out underwriting the project."

Thanks Elle
