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.”

ADANI is a disaster waiting to happen. Can’t use our water surely…. it will be what water before long. Check his credentials….. Don’t betray the people. Get into big renewables and CREATE JOBS. Let’s get smart and look ahead not back to Victorian insmdustries PLEASE.

Don’t trust Adani. They promised jobs and then failed to follow environment conditions resulting in the destruction of a marine Park comparable with the Great Barrier Reef and destroyed the livelihoods of fishing people,farmers and villagers seizing their grazing lands. How can you help such a morally corrupt and destructive company?? I am horrified and saddened that you do.

Two reasons, climate change and we need that money for essential services, not propping up a corrupt billionaire.

I feel you are getting re-elected on false promises and this is more important than your fellow Australians? Giving away water in a dry continent is insane. Especially a continent with Sun that can create energy through sun – at the moment!
