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.

This is a one way decision, if it goes ahead the oh so valuable GBR, will be gone. Please make this decision with the future of the earth in mind rather than dirty energy!

The Adani coalmine is only going to provide a small number of jobs & the majority of profits will go overseas. At the same time, it risks damage and destruction of Australia’s natural resources, including the Great Barrier Reef, with massive repercussions for the existing tourism economy. The Reef is already extremely vulnerable. Adani has an appalling track record of environmental damage, including in Australia. It makes no economic sense to allow the mine to continue, nor to use public funding to support an overseas-owned company which will do little to benefit Australians. Australia has an appalling track record around tax concessions to overseas companies meaning that the Australian public is likely to see little benefit from the royalties received (if these amount to anything after public expenditure on infrastructure & tax incentives). The water licences awarded to Adani are also disgraceful. Why are we allowing an overseas-owned coal company unrestricted water licenses, while simultaneously restricting Australian farmers’ water usage, despite the latter producing food and contributing significantly to the Australian economy?

Enough is enough. End reliance on old technology(coal) that is finite and globally and locally destructive/damaging. Coal is far more costly than clean/green energy when we take in the costs of climate change. Be brave and say know to Adani Mr Prime Minister.

The Barrier Reef is already suffering and will be even more damaged if the Adani project goes ahead

Billions to a billionar, who destroys the planet with dirty coal, and big doubtful job promises for big pollution – but did they consider that renewable energy is on a successful march + coal-energy becomes obsolete very soon everywhere?

The Great Barrier Reef does not belong to us – it belongs to future generations. We are merely the custodians for a very short time. Do not betray our children and grandchildren. Stop the Adani coal mine now.

Even though I am a Senior Citizen I Would like this mine stopped so that future generations can enjoy a coal free environment, a pristine Barrier Reef and unspoiled wetlands.
