April 9th, 2011 – Rally against Queensland coal exports

Queensland has been exporting coal (to Japan, initially) since the 1960s.  Thanks to technological innovation (American) and a pliant state, it’s exporting more and more coal every year (give or take the occasional cyclone).

The tragic trajectory is set, the momentum (political, economic, cultural) is irresistible.  Still, you can’t blame people for protesting
