'Though the [Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority's] questionably named Statement of Reasons reassures that any negative effects on the reef could be mitigated by ‘management plans and environmental site supervision,’ one need look no further than the GBRMPA’s board of directors for the motivation for their actions, with two of the five board members having connections to the coal industry.'
