Clive Palmer's Conspiracy Theory

The Qld Treasurer tweeted this morning:

Andrew Fraser
Lettuce know what you think of page 33 of please Prof? Doesn't exactly mesh w your conspiracy theory ...

Strangely enough page 33 refers to the Goonyella to Abbott Point Rail Project - Draft terms of reference for environmental impact statement....

This would appear to be a rival BHP Billiton project in the same corridor as Clive Palmer's project. On face value, it appears to mesh quite well with Clive Palmer's conspiracy theory.

Have your say:

The Coordinator-General has prepared draft terms of reference (TOR) for the environmental impact statement (EIS) for the Goonyella to Abbot Point Rail Project.

The draft TOR set out the matters that BHP Billiton MetCoal Holdings Pty Ltd must address when preparing the EIS.

The public and state government advisory agencies are invited to comment on whether the draft TOR adequately cover all the matters the project proponent must address when preparing the EIS.

The Coordinator-General will consider your comments before finalising the TOR.

Comments close at 5pm on Monday 5 March 2012.

(The project's impacts on matters of national environmental significance are being assessed separately by the Australian Government.)
