It's the biggest con of the century - that coal is good for humanity.
A new report has found that the health costs far outweigh the benefits that flow from coal mining.
This destructive industry accounts for just 5% of jobs in the Hunter Valley and 2% of the state's revenue, so why is it full steam ahead for coal at the expense of community wellbeing?
Join us to find out how you can help turn this ship of fossil fools around.
Guest speakers include:
Francis Grey, principle economist, Economists at Large
Fiona Armstrong, Convenor of Climate and Health Alliance and author of Coal and Health in the Hunter.
Professor Peter Sainsbury, Associate Professor, School of Public Health, University of Sydney
John Lamb - Grazier and President, Bulga-Milbrodale Progress Association
This event is co-hosted by the Defenders of Our Land Water & Future and Climate Change Balmain Rozelle.
