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!
All politicians just need to get on with it!
Australia is burning and flooding let’s fix our State, Country and planet
It’s time to take a stand for the benefit of QLDers now as well as future generations
Do it now!
Be proactive in providing alternative industries and jobs in NQ coal areas
Queensland could be leading the world in renewable technology with our unique resources!
Let us leave our future generations with a clean, green state. The coal and gas we export put Australia in the top 5 contributors to global emissions.
Move our state towards renewables or loose your seat in government!
Dependence on thermal coal is denying Queensland its rightful place in the sun while contributing disproportionately to the global climate change that is already killing the reef and threatening life on this planet. We need to urgently transition to renewable sectors of the economy which are far more sustainable and offer far greater benefits for jobs today as well as supporting a viable future for the next generations. Queensland has the attributes and capacity to be world leaders in sustainable energy and climate action. Let us not squander this opportunity!
