As bushfires rage across the country, the Queensland government is considering a secret deal with Adani that could mean the coal corporation pockets hundreds of millions of dollars of public money for its climate-wrecking mine.

Analysis by The Australia Institute shows Adani’s special coal royalty deal could be worth between $250 and $700 million dollars. The Palaszczuk Government has refused to reveal the terms of this shady arrangement, claiming it’s too confidential for us to know about.

Our elected representatives have a responsibility to create a future where our communities, reef and wildlife thrive, not prop up dirty coal.
Add your name to this open letter to send the Premier a clear message — no dirty royalty deal for Adani:

“Dear Premier,

During the last Queensland election you promised there would be no public money for Adani’s climate-wrecking coal mine.

If Adani’s mine goes ahead it would unleash billions of tonnes of pollution, at a time when we must rapidly phase out coal and take urgent action on the climate crisis.

We ask you to keep your election promise and not cut a special royalty deal with Adani.”

It was a promise that Adani would have to be financially viable to proceed.

Adani is playing both the QLD and Federal governments as fools, and they are stupidly going along with it. Luckily the “people” can see through it and are fighting back. If we were as gullible as our respective level of governmentS this planet destroying mine would chugging away sucking our water and polluting our extremely valuable BGR. Wake up to yourself and end this lunacy and tell Adani the deal is completely off the table.

Absolutely criminal if this mine goes ahead!

It beggars belief the QLD government will not only allow Adani to have free access to water but also to allow the corporation to pay no royalities.

No means no. We are at the start of a climate emergency. We don’t need any more coal mines. We can’t. Our atmosphere can not sustain another 50 points of CO2.

I think it’s a disgrace we are desperate for water and this is allowed to happen
