Adani coalmine: most Queenslanders want water licence revoked, poll finds

Almost 70% of all voters agreed the licence, to extract groundwater for the Carmichael coalmine, should be revoked to safeguard water for farmers. Half of Liberal National party voters and three in four One Nation voters also agreed.

As of last week, 58% of Queensland was drought declared. Adani was granted the water extraction licence by the Queensland government in 2017. It allows the mining company to take water from the Betts Creek formation until 2077.
