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.”

The cost of this proposed mine is too high. Please let our water resources, our farmers and our reef survive by not paying for this climate changing mine.

Dear premier when are you going to listen to the people of Qld and start to understand we do not want this mine and their free access to our ground water while our farmers and their cattle are dying of crippling debt and thirst. You have blood on your hands by not helping our farming communities,they have to buy water while you and your government grand free access to mining companies. I am ashamed to call myself a Queenslander.

Please stop spending tax payers’ money on climate-wrecking ventures. We need to start being active to ensure a good future for the next generation, not lining the pockets of old coal magnates who will probably be dead in 20-25 years.

It is unbelievable that this coal mine is going ahead at all. Do not add further insult to the Australian people by allowing this further travesty. We need to focus on building a clean green environment.

Public tax payers money should NOT be spent on this ecological disaster of a mine. YOU promised it wouldn’t. So live up to your promises.

The cost, short and long term, to QLD for this stupidity is enormous. Do not bail out an overseas environmental vandal.

Kay 2019-11-28 14:17:36 +1100
Do not go down in history as the disgusting low-life MP who allowed this monstrosity in the form of the Adani Coalmine to happen. There is enough environmental damage happening already – do NOT add to it. If you represent the people of Queensland you will not do this.
Cheryl 2019-11-28 14:17:16 +1100
Don’t support coal mining. Invest in renewable instead.
Elizabeth 2019-11-28 14:13:05 +1100
Stop selling off and giving away our country… So much greed and corruption that must stop. We need to put our efforts into industries that will protect our natural assets not destroy them. When is enough enough? when the last tree is left standing, when the last river has dried up? Wake up.. It’s not all about you and lining the greedy pockets of corporations who pay no tax… So angry………
