I am an environmental scientist and I've been following this process since the proposal was first lodged with the EPA. LD put in one of the shabbiest, lightest and most scientifically unfounded proposals I've ever seen. Its up to the proponent to demonstrate that a proposal is environmentally acceptable and how they will manage any impacts. They did not do this. In fact the 'public opposition' (they are relevant scientists I might add) managed to provide a better account of what was likely to result from the proposal simply by doing the literature review that the proponent didn't bother with. PS: FYI its not the environmental approval process, its an assessment process. Approval is not by any means guaranteed.
