Echo.net reported that Adani is forking out millions on advertising in a bid to counter the opposition to its plan for a massive coal mine in the Galilee Basin. As the Bob Brown convoy draws closer to the site of the proposed mine in Central Queensland, the mining company has launched a ‘Know the Facts’ campaign in a bid to discredit the claims that the mine will contribute to climate change, the desecration of Aboriginal land, and the destruction of the Great Barrier Reef. Adani Mining chief executive Mr Lucas Dow told The Courier Mail that the company’s campaign would counter the lies, insults and hysteria touted over the past week by anti-coal activists. As we have always said, everyone has the right to voice their opinion but the past week has seen extremist green activists insult the tens of thousands of Australians who make up our coal mining industry, likening them to drug dealers and Nazis during the holocaust.”

Former Greens leader Bob Brown has repeatedly repudiated the comments, and he questioned the validity of Adani’s advertising campaign. He said “Lucas Dow knows where to contact me but clearly doesn’t care to.”
