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!
We need to do this. It should have been done already.
This makes economical and environmental sense. A no brainer.
Supporting Adani is just like sticking your head in the sand and and pretending climate change is not happening. Rather than supporting a corrupt Indian billionaire why not put our tax dollars into developing jobs in alternate energies and create new jobs, save the reef, conserve our scarce water resources and save the planet.
It’s time to fully engage with the future energy sources rather than continuing to try to walk the line between coal and the new energy future
It’s just obvious isn’t it?
We need to go to renewables
Kim Straker It’s not good enough for government, of any persuasion OR at any level, to keep telling us that it’s all under control and they know what they’re doing. It ISN’T and they DON’T and it has to change now.
