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!
If you want the Sunshine State to become the Smart State we have to solve the Climate issues. Renewables is a start…Staying in power is another way of making sure it happens.
Come on Queensland. Let’s make this a responsible transition.
Australia could be leading the world with solar and instead our politicians are worshipping coal. After the outpouring of sympathy from around the world for the bushfire victims we are increasingly viewed as fuelling our own destruction.
The transition to clean energy is going to happen; you can be the ones to lead the way!
Jenni Sharpe It is time to move on from fossil fuels and start investing seriously in renewables.
Stop stuffing around with our lives and everyone’s future.
PLEASE get with the program. Delaying is just that…delaying. And looking bad in the meantime and looking back at this with shame in the future.
