Gina Rinehart Named in Time Magazines Most Influential List

Posted: April 18th, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: Indeep Media | Tags: , , , , | Comments Off on Gina Rinehart Named in Time Magazines Most Influential List

Gina RinehartTime magazine has named Australian mining magnate Gina Rinehart as one of the world’s most influential people. Ms Rinehart is dubbed the “Iron Woman” in the magazine’s annual list of the world’s top 100 power players.

“The spectre of Rinehart looms above the Australian landscape: an improbably wealthy, concrete-minded, broad-shouldered woman who spent more than a decade in legal and personal battles with her stepmother and four children and insists nothing will come before the company she calls the House of Hancock,” the article says. “Mining, she says, will save resource-rich, prosperous Australia from ruin.”

Time’s article lists Ms Rinehart as a ‘Titan’, and also makes note of her comments that the poor should drink less and work harder. Ms Rinehart is the only Australian to be featured in the Time list of global leaders, artists, pioneers and icons. Also included on the list are American rapper Jay-Z, SpaceX founder Elron Musk, and Pakistani teenager Malala Yousufzai, who made world headlines after being shot in the head by the Taliban.

“Beauty,” says Australia’s richest person, Gina Rinehart, “is an iron mine.”

Australian Billionaire Clive Palmer Claims Green Groups Funded by CIAAustralian mining magnate Clive Palmer has outlandishly accused the United States Government of funding environmental group Greenpeace via theCIA to undermine Australia’s coal mining sector. Palmer made the extraordinary claim over Greenpeace’s plan to use the court system to tie up coal mining applications.

Palmer is apparently 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.

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. Read the full article »»»»
