"Adani and the war over coal lifts the lid on a farrago of
lies, deceit and brute cronyism infesting two great democracies."
-- Bob Brown
"There are many big, bad projects the fossil fuel industry is pushing across the planet, but the Adani coal mine may be the biggest and stupidest of them all. To understand the roots of this debacle, and to remind you why it's necessary that we fight relentlessly to kill this project, this book is necessary reading." --Bill McKibben, author The End of Nature
