URGENT: $1 billion in public funding could be used to prop up Adani's giant polluting coal mine! 

It looks like PM Malcolm Turnbull is preparing to give multinational mining company Adani $1 billion of public money to fund a coal-carting railway line from the Galilee Basin to the Great Barrier Reef coast.

Media reports say the Northern Australia Infrastructure Facility (NAIF) funds are earmarked for the project.

During the election, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said – on camera – that there would be no public funding for Adani's mine. 

We are holding him to that promise. We don’t want this mega-polluting coal mine.

Billionaire polluter Gautam Adani has met the Prime Minister recently.

When Mr Adani puts on the hard word, we need Malcolm Turnbull to know – we won't accept giving a billion dollars of public funding to a billionaire's company creating billions of tonnes of pollution.

Mr Adani has a mining licence, but he will never have a social licence. 

Sign the petition calling on Malcolm Turnbull to put Adani's requests for publicly-funded subsidies in the bin. 

Together, let's call for our money to be invested in clean energy, not wrecking the Great Barrier Reef.

Prime Minister Turnbull, during the election you said there would be no public funding for Adani. Adani's Reef-killing coal mine is not public infrastructure. Don’t waste public money on it.

We're partnering with our friends at GetUp! and across the movement on this petition.

Please Malcolm, the time has come to be gentle on the earth. We live in a beautiful country and it’s time to value its beauty instead of creating damage that cannot be reversed. This is how such decisions need to be made. Am i going to create a scar on the earth than can never be healed? Is there a possibility that one of the great wonders of the natural world, our spectacular reef, is going to be at risk because of the Adani mine? The answer, i strongly suspect, is yes. No amount of money is worth it. Eventually it will be spent and we and our country will be worse off because of this short sighted decision.

The Prime Minister needs to re-gain some ethical and moral integrity and keep to his promise to not to give $1 billion OF OUR MONEY to a corrupt polluter like Adani. He also obviously needs reminding of his commitment to the Paris Agreement.

Tourism is infinite and it creates more jobs than any coal mine. Coal is so temporary and destructive that it’s nonsensical to even consider it as an option!!!
