Go home greenies!(Take Labour with you!)
Australia is on the verge of a recession thanks to Gillard and the greens, unemployments going through the roof, cost of living is ridiculous, and now they try and attack one industry that is keeping Australia afloat.
For the sake of a bit of coral!
Get real!

And in 50 years if there is no reef & the mining boom in decline. Then what? They shouldn't reduce shipping but make them head straight out into the deeper ocean & not allowed to travel thru the reef channels. A 100km more on a several thousand km journey is nothing but offers the reef far greater protection.
