You know it’s Christmas when the government whispers its worst announcements and sheepishly hopes they’ll be drowned out by holiday cheer.
As the federal government approves the dredging of 1.1 million cubic metres of spoil near the Great Barrier Reef to build a 14 hectare theme park highlighting all the ways coal is good for humanity, 350.org and Getup are already on the case to overturn this appalling misjudgement.
Situation Theatre has obtained an exclusive copy of the business plan for the park. The summary reads:
“Fossil Fuel World will be almost as amazing as coal itself. Enjoy heart pumping thrills on the Coal Price Freefall, defy logic and gravity on the Denialatron, sabotage climate action on the Exxon Pirate Ship, and make sure you wear your face masks on the death-defying Coal Train. You can even experience the relationship between the coal industry and the Coalition government on the Coal Carousel.”
“Geocentric Universal Studios” and “Smokers’ Kingdom” have also just been approved.
