Thank you, Kristian Lasslett, for standing up for the PNG people whose human rights have been violated by the mining industry.

I cannot understand how BHP, one of the biggest mining companies in the world, which began in Australia, and in which many Australians own shares, cannot seem to accept responsibility for the mess they made in PNG with their Ok Tedi mine, and also accept responsibility to fix it up.

If they are so rich and clever they should be able to hire the best people in the world to restore the Fly river to its original state for the sake of all the people whose lives depend on it.

If mining companies can't do just that then the mine should not go ahead.

I remember meeting the engineers from the SMA while they were working on building the tailings dam back in the early days. I guess all the trouble goes back to the time that this dam failed.

Garnaut does not sound like a caring person and his arrogance is overwhelming!
