Mining magnate Clive Palmer has accused the United States government of funding environmental group Greenpeace via the CIA to undermine Australia’s coal mining sector.

Mr Palmer made the extraordinary claim over Greenpeace’s plan to use the court system to tie up coal mining applications.

He is angry at Greenpeace’s plan to use lawyers to thwart future coal mining projects and claims funding is coming from US environmental charity the Rockefeller Foundation.

He alleges it is funded by the CIA and says it is trying to harm Australia’s industry and help American interests.

Mr Palmer referred to a paper produced by environmental group Greenpeace which calls for action to stop the expansion of the Queensland coal industry.

Greenpeace’s plans were leaked to the media earlier this month as it organises a campaign to raise $6 million to fund legal battles against controversial coal mining projects across Australia.

    Have you noticed truth creeping out of every seam ( no pun intended!)

    This is the sort of disclosure that starts to test political alliances. The final realisation the intelligence agencies do not work for countries, but corporate interests.
