To the Queensland government,
From droughts to bushfires, Queenslanders are living with the impacts of climate damage here and now.
Queensland can be a leader in clean energy. We could be powering our homes, our towns and our economy with good energy and new jobs, powered by the wind and the sun.
If Queenslanders own our clean energy, we can create thousands of jobs we can be proud of and bring down power prices.
We are calling on you to make public investment in big renewable projects a priority, and act now to:
- Get on with climate action: set stronger pollution reduction targets, and rapidly replace coal-fired power with clean energy
- Build publicly-owned renewables, starting construction of at least one large project by mid-2020.
- Plan and fund a fair transition for workers in the energy sector.
Let's get on with it!
Do we really want to do nothing and deal with worsening fires and droughts? Shut down coal and give us renewables
It is imperative Queensland transitions towards clean energy.
Please show some leadership rather than continuing to try to be more reactionary than the LNP.
Time for procrastination has gone. Turn jobs from the coal industry into renewable energy positions with investment into renewable energy, and let’s start planting trees to absorb all that carbon!
It’s time to get renewable energy to the fore. Stop 🛑 the Adani mine and other potential coal mining …. the state cannot afford the damage. Renewables are our future.
You and We all have our last chance now!
Renewables not only create more employment…they give a chance to stabilise our climate.
