Adani has declared it's full steam ahead for its controversial coal mine but not everyone is happy.
What people are saying now that Adani has Queensland government approvals to construct its controversial thermal coal mine.
THOSE THAT ARE HAPPY
"Construction can now begin" - Adani chief Lucas Dow is promising to deliver 1500 direct and 6750 indirect jobs for regional Queenslanders during ramp up.
"The Adani Carmichael mine is one of six in the Galilee Basin that could create tens of thousands of jobs in construction and operation and deliver billions of dollars in royalties over their working life span" - The Queensland Resources Council.
THOSE HAPPY A DECISION HAS FINALLY BEEN MADE
"Is it is just good to see it moving. At least there has been a decision made now which is good for the proponents and to everyone that has been following and will be impacted by the projects" - Anne Baker, mayor of Isaac Regional Council.
"On behalf the people of Townsville they just wanted a decision made one way or the other. We have that now, so what we want to see is these local jobs that Adani has talked about. We want them to materialise and go forward" - Townsville state MP Scott Stewart.
THE DECISION MAKER
"At times the robustness of the process has attracted criticism from those in the media and the community, who would have liked a quicker decision. It has been derided by the LNP, here in Queensland, who have appeared to be keen to see all environmental processes abandoned" - Environment Minister Leeanne Enoch.
WHO IS ANGRY?
"Now it's on. I'm personally prepared for what lies ahead" - Ben Pennings, anti-Adani group Galilee Blockade.
"Science has been thrown in the bin for political expediency" - Tom Crothers, a former general manager for water allocation and planning in the Queensland government, accused Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk of pressuring bureaucrats to approve the plan.
"Leading water scientists tell us that Adani's modelling is flawed, not fit for purpose and risks drying up the ecologically important Doongmabulla Springs" - Mackay Conservation Group community organiser Emma Barrett.
