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.”

Allowing big corporations to drain subsurface water is insane. Please don’t allow this destructive activity.

Keep your election promises, and make no deals. The simple fact that the Adani mine has been given a green light to go ahead, in light of the alternative options for power and industry, and in the face of so much evidence that suggest it won’t even be economically viable for long term should be enough of a red light.

Coal mining makes the globe hotter. Create pathways for mining communities to move from coal to the alternative energy sources that hold so much promise for Queensland jobs.

With the fire situation so dire, do not enable Adani to continue! Their mine will contribute to conditions that will make future bushfire seasons Even Worse! If this doesn’t convince us to say NO to coal, what will? We need to wake up!

We are well over due to take care of Nature, NOT environment vandals, Adani. I wish all people would understand basic Biology – humans RELY on a rich biodiversity of life for SURVIVAL – we NEED as many species of plants, animals as possible AND a HUGE reduction of fossil fuels, such as coal, REDUCE drastically C02. Science is not making it up for $$. Its about a healthy long lasting home for humans, plants & animals. Humans are animals.
