BHP Billiton: The Polluter must Pay

Video | 9 June, 2011

Greenpeace calculated that under a projected carbon price of $26 per tonne, BHP's Mount Arthur Mine in the Hunter Valley (their largest existing Australian coal operation) would face a carbon tax impost roughly equivalent to only 3 days of operations. We tried to extract this carbon tax by establishing a 'carbon tax collection point' on the rail line leading from the mine.
