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.”

Even though I am not a Queenslander, the water used by this mine will not be lost to Queensland alone, the terrible consequences will be felt downstream also.

Jobs are really important. Please diligently and honestly consider the returns of investing in and supporting jobs in renewables instead of giving public money to a convcted envronmental and business criminal

Do not use taxpayer dollars to destroy this country for a nice bribe from Mr Adani. My elderly father has not had water for 6 months, can’t wash or flush his toilet so why are you giving water away to criminals? People need water to survive but you would rather watch my father slowly die from lack of it so you can get your bribe from another murderer. You are a disgrace.

Co2 emitters should have a pollution tax added on to royalties at the original source, in this case the coal mine.

Please stop Adani’s polluting coal mine. With bushfires raging throughout you have a responsibility to look after our country, and our wildlife. You promised no public money for Adani, please stick to your promise. Thank you

It’s disgraceful that the Queensland government would even consider another special deal for Adani’s climate-wrecking coal mine!

Don’t cut a special deal with Adani.
