One Nation leader Pauline Hanson says she has mixed feelings about coral bleaching, after taking her senators to a healthy part of the Great Barrier Reef in an effort to disprove claims the icon is dying.
Ms Hanson was presented was “indisputable’ evidence that the reef is not dying, after throwing on a wetsuit and snorkel gear for her swim off Great Keppel Island on Friday, over 1000 kilometres away when she took aim at green groups for telling “untruths” about the reef’s health.
“What we have here is a small minority of completely healthy coral dictating how the rest of us should act”
“The coloured coral communities should focus on assimilating with the white communities as well”
Australia is relying on its Reef 2050 Plan to convince the UN agency to keep the Great Barrier Reef off its list of World Heritage sites in danger.
Senator Roberts said Australia should not be reporting on the reef to a UN agency, which had “fabricated” climate change.
